what to write about the weather

may flowers smilesbymegan

The dreaded small talk conversation.
You offer a smile.
And a hello.
And then maybe a comment about the weather.
But you leave feeling unfulfilled and wondering why you’ve just had a relatively meaningless conversation-if you can call it that- with someone.
It may be someone you know or an elevator companion or the clerk.
You wonder if they care about the answer.
You wonder if you care.

You finally sit down to pen a note to a friend, but all you can think about are the same quips about the weather.
You know she ‘d love to hear from you and she probably doesn’t even care if you discuss the weather.

It’s okay to talk about the weather.

But what if you turn a complaint about the lack of sun into a note reminiscing about a rainstorm?
What did it sound like?
What did it smell like?
What color was the sky?
Did it wash the driveway or your car?
Do you like the rain?
Do you watch it from the porch or from the window?

All of a sudden you have a much more intriguing story to share.
Your friend feels like she’s sharing the moment with you.

When you’re wondering what to write, take something  – like the weather – and make it meaningful and memorable.
