This morning I was set to have coffee with a friend at 8am but he was running behind.
Finally, at 8:15 I emailed him and told him I was going to go ahead and start the conversation without him and when he arrived he could jump in and pick up wherever we were at that time.
Fortunately, he showed up about 3 minutes later.
The conversation was off to a sluggish start by myself and seemed to jump from irrelevant topic to irrelevant topic.
Fortunately, we ended up having a great conversation.
Which just shows a conversation with 2 is much better than a conversation alone.
