Taylor is nervous about the governor's reception.
She's afraid she won't know what to talk about.
Jim gives her some ideas.
She can make comments about different things to break the ice.
Then she can introduce herself.
Susie told Taylor to talk about the city and humorous things.
Susie has lots of ideas.
Taylor thinks Susie should go to the reception instead!
Taylor is really nervous.
She's going to the governor's reception on April 21.
She's afraid she won't know what to say.
She won't know what to say to the governor?
No, she won't know what to say to other people at the reception.
Oh! So she has to make small talk.
Right. She's nervous about that.
She can talk about books or movies.
Those are good topics.
Hey, Jim. I need help.
I'm worried about the governor's reception.
What can I talk about?
I can give you some ideas.
Make comments about different things to break the ice.
Then talk about the food or even the room itself.
Then introduce yourself.
That's good advice.
I can talk about work, too.
And maybe tell some funny stories.
Those are also good ideas!
What are you doing this weekend?
I might see a movie. Why?
I'm just making small talk.
You must have been talking to Taylor.
Uh-huh. I told her she could talk about things to do in the city, sports, something humorous ...
You must be good at small talk.
That's what Taylor said.
She said I should go to the reception instead of her!
