The Weather Aboveground

When conversing with co-workers, there really are only two topics of ultimate inoffensiveness: the weather and the weekend. The weather is always safe, and you can even reveal a comfortable amount of roguishness by saying that you "really like" the rain or don't mind a sudden mid-summer temperature drop. This shows that you're a rebel, but a safe one.

Asking and answering questions about weekend plans is also fair game, unless your weekend plans have to do with snorting blow at the Gypsy Tea Lounge or getting a handjob in the backseat of a cab.

you're quite silly barrett.

'aboveground' is one of those words whose existence always surprises me, much like 'earwitness'.

I had no idea that earwitness was a word.
