What talent would you like to be famous for?
The team at The Stencil Library were given a gift of Green and Blacks organic chocolate Conversations. The individual squares chocolate are wrapped inside printed questions. The questions are engineered to spark conversation as you and your loved ones munch their way through the chocolate contents.... They have to be loved ones before I would even contemplate sharing chocolate.
What a brilliant idea I thought. I am rubbish at starting conversations so I can learn from this.
I unwrapped a square then read the question aloud to myself, answered it and ate the chocolate. Ask me another? It was such a delicious chat that I had to hear more from me ...which meant unwrapping more questions, asking and answering the questions myself then eating more chocolate. What an excellent game, much more fun than sharing the goodies and I got to talk about me with no interruptions. Hurrah!
I have put the Conversations wrappers in my purse. Instead of lurking around the buffet at the next party I shall retrieve the questions, sashay up to an intriguing looking person and start a conversation using them.
"If you could live anywhere in the world where would that be?
What is your earliest memory?
If you could have something named after you what would it be?
What was the last film that you saw in a cinema and did you enjoy it?
If you could swap places with one person for a day who would it be?"
Actually, I will probably just pass them the questions on the paper wrappers. In case I can't chat, my mouth is bound to be full of chocolate. Anyone got any (printable) answers to those questions? We could start a conversation.
