Monday morning is where the “How was your weekend?” questions start.
Do you answer them truthfully?
My answer would be along the lines of “Crap. I had cramps, the painkillers spaced me out & made me feel strange, I didn’t sleep, and I cried at random things (probably because of the lack of sleep).”
But do I say that? Does honesty have a place in casual conversation?
I wouldn’t give that spiel to the person serving my breakfast, but would I give that spiel to people I know well at work?
I find it hard sometimes to know where to draw the line with being truthful. And even more so when I’m tired or unwell.
Where do you draw the line on being truthful in casual conversation? Do you also find it hard to maintain small talk if you’re not feeling like yourself?
