I don't do small talk. I sometimes have a tendency to chatter if I get nervous, so I try to pay attention to that and control it. But the other day while chatting to this guy, the only (ONLY!) responses I could come with were "oh." and "really?". Because I am a dumbass. I could actually see the interest sliding off of this guy's face as we talked.
Today, two days later, I come up with the perfect followup questions to everything in the conversation.
So now I have the option of having him think I am mentally blank, or the next time I run into him sound like a crazed stalker and pick up the previous conversation so I can throw in my good followups.
I am an idiot.
