Old man strategy.

I have a new stategy for conversing with old men on the bus or at the bus stops or in the makolets.

I give them the conversational responses they would give me… It totally stumps them! And, obviously, it sharpens my old man conversational hebrew.

Old man on bus: “Boy, was it hot today.”

Me: “Yup.”

Old man on bus: “And it’s going to be hot tomorrow.”

Me: “Yup.”

Old man on bus: “And there’s going to be a heat wave on Saturday.”

Me: “Here comes summer, eh?”

Old man on bus: (Looks at me ponderingly and nods) “Yes… I’m just more of a winter person than a summer person.”

Me: “What can you do, though, right?”

Old man on bus: “Right.”
