Welcome to another Monday edition of Small Talk News Items. For those who are new around here, this is where I put out a few news links that have caught my eye over the past week that may make for good small talk as you meet new friends and chat with your existing pals.
These make good small talk items because they are light, current, and will help you find new things to talk about. Here are some other topics that make for good small talk.
Enjoy these links, and have a great week.
- Twitter has a new king.
- Have you heard about the French stench?
- I've long called myself a Luddite, but really I don't think I am. In any case, I found this little piece about the original of the name interesting.
- Cory Booker saves a dog from the cold. (I love this story. It's too easy to ignore things like this and was glad to see he took action.)
- The haircut of the year!
- The herb of the year!
