Dear Carol

How to get in on any convo

 

I have good friends at camp, but when I ask what they’re talking about, this one girl gets really mad. How can I tell her to stop getting all mad at me just because I ask about a conversation?

 

Dear Not That Annoying,

I don’t know what her deal is but, instead of quizzing a group with, “What are you talking about?” join right in after listening a moment to what’s being discussed. When in doubt, jump in with a new subject: “Did you hear there was a mouse in Deer Cabin?” And you can’t go wrong with a compliment like, “Love your bracelet!” or an invitation like, “Who wants to go swimming later?”

 

Camp will soon be over, but do your best to find girls who welcome your company rather than trying to become closer with a girl who choose to act stuck up.
