"Hey Robb, how are you doing?"
"Hi, did you have a good weekend?"
I spent 8 hours at work today. And in that time, 15 words were spoken to my face. All of them before 8:30 am. All of them in-passing pleasantries where an answer was not expected.
It is conceivably possible that I could have gone through this entire day with those 15 words being the only ones spoken to me. What if I were single and lived alone and didn't have a family who wanted to (or had to, I guess) speak to me? What if I didn't have a church meeting to go to tonight? What if my old friend didn't call to get caught up? I suppose there are people in that lonely situation, who go through an entire day with 15 words spoken to them. 15 words.
