20 minutes after goodbye

Grace and I are still standing in the mission lobby late at night, with me wondering what types of conversations are the most meaningful. Girls love to talk to each other about their boy situations (in fact, that happens on most of our runs), but is that frivolous? Should we be talking about “more important things” than boys? But what does “more important” mean? What “should” we be talking about? And what are the point of conversations anyway? Are they only to get closer to the people one is talking to, or is the goal to have an epiphany about life or a topic? What is the “best” conversation? It feels like for every type, there could be a criticism. About boys? Too frivolous. About class? Too nerdy. About the future? Too practical. About politics? Too distant from life (or not). Maybe every type has its own value.
