What do you do?
It has to be one of the most used opening questions when meeting a new person but the answer will give you so little back.
After all, not many people answer I’m a tightrope walker, and even if they did, it will only enable us to judge if we’re going continue with small talk or move on.
So we were driving back home this evening and to while away the journey we decide to play ‘how many yellow cars?’, which is a game where you all say how many yellow cars you think that you will see before you get home? The one who is closest to their number wins. Now I am not telling this story because I won (oh and I won ‘how many Christmas trees?’ too, LOL).
No, the reason for it is, that before smartphones and tech, those were the kind of games we all played to avoid boredom, but the avoidance of boredom that involves using your own imagination and then playing something with a group of others is what leads to fun, creativity, memories and so much more than can be offered by a 6 inch glass screen that you are singularly connected to.
Get out of the tech and count yellow cars for a more fulfilling life.
