Some people get it and others don't, even after you explain it. Or perhaps it simply defies explanation. It doesn't matter, I have no interest in trying to get to know those who don't understand the art of conversation or communication. There is no discernable human spirit behind the words, they have all the charm and character of an automaton (robots these days have some personality). Even giving voice to my extensive curiosity yields monosyllabic responses. It seems to be a young Joe Friday on the other side, "Just the facts, ma'am." What is the point of trying any more?
