Why do we always bring up the weather when we don’t know what to say? Is it because it’s something everyone can relate to for the most part.
My favorite question to ask is “what’s your favorite color?” Why? Because most people don’t give a shit of what your favorite color is, to the point some people forget the answer to that question.
In a way it’s like an activation question to take you out of this state of hypnosis and to remind you that once a upon a time you were a child and your favorite color meant a great deal to you, because back then the world wasn’t so bland
; out of a multitude of options “blue” was your favorite.
Now it’s easier to talk, I’m not speaking to the generic person which society forced you to be, no longer telling me only things I want to hear and leaving out the parts of you that might be disturbing to me.
That simple question made it possible for me to get to know a piece of the real you without you even realizing.
So “what’s your favorite color?”
