Four years ago (time passes) I wrote 11 Conversation Starters for Small Wooden Shoe
(you can watch the 11 develop here)
They’ve held up well.
While I fear running the risk of ruining the aphorisms, like the comic explaining his jokes, I am going to start a tag thread for the series. To write a little more about each one, giving credit for where they come from and opening a space for them to work the way they were supposed to: as conversation starters.
A recap of the 11 after the break -
