I just finished chatting with a much senior citizen (85). For over an hour and a half, I listened to her telling me about her life. Of course this wasn't a waste of time but...would you do it?
It's not that I can't listen...or you can't listen... The point is...can you listen and chat without looking at the clock? And with the feeling that you are enjoying the conversation? (However onesided it might be) Now...could you do that?
