Happy to be able to be outdoors without drowning. A break in the apocalyptic weather of the last several months. Lifetimes.
And by the way, talking about the weather is not just idle chatter, according to The Economist:
Lnguists call that crucial "hello" talk "phatic". Bronislaw Malinowski, who coined the term in the 1920s, explained that in phatic talk "ties of union are created by a mere exchange of words." If you know literally nothing about someone you can still safely presume they prefer sun to rain, and begin to establish a connection on that basis. If your bus or train is suddenly stuck, an even better opportunity arises. You can be sure your fellow passengers are not happy about it, and a shared grousing session makes them—and you—feel less alone with your inconvenience.
Have a nice day!
