April 24, 2009

People love when other people are interested in them and they are asked about themselves and are listened to attentively and actively as they talk about themselves. The rest is commentary.

    Patiently Yankees to win at Fenway tonight.

  2. It goes something like “When I dined with Mr. Gladstone, I was convinced that he was the most fascinating person in the world, until I dined with Mr. Disraeli, who convinced me that I was.”

  3. Gonzo Says:

    Oh noes! Scary ventures into Dale Carnegie’s territory!

  4. JLK Says:

    But what about when you can’t seem to get someone to talk about his/herself?

  5. Catharine Zivkovic Says:

    So true. But how is this commentary different from the “rest” of the commentary? And did you type this while standing on one foot?

  6. Y’all need to come out here and party, bring yer own antibiotics.


  7. Would it also be commentary to mention that the Yankees shit the bed this weekend? Probably. I can’t tell you how tickled I am by the Hank Steinbrenner era.

    This is also Dating 101, except that in that case, fake interest at your peril.

  9. I was kinda waiting to hear about what CPP thought of Jacoby’s steal of home, frankly. I figured his new post “Rat deserts the sinking ship” might have something to do with someone bailing on the Stinkees.
