What is the best or worst exchange you ever took part in?
Here is a recent one which I find quite absurd, thus fascinating.
I was at the house of a fruit and vegetable trader. While showing me around his house and drinking champagne from heavy glasses, we exchanged some words over his open-air bathroom/bedroom’s bathtub -which had a switch for the glass windows to turn opaque by shining light through them.
I gained knowledge about lifestyle and technology, he got compliments on the bathtub.
Make a list of things you would like to perform as often as washing your hands these days.
My hands are getting drier and drier due to the continuous rubbing of a basic substance on them. It makes me really worried that they might be getting harmed. It makes me feel like I am drying from the outside.
So for every time I will be washing my hands, I as well hope I will be touching others, picking-up cash from the ground, and putting cream on my hands.
Would you describe a situation that moved you recently?
A couple of months ago I was on the phone with my mother and she was telling me how impressed she was about the silence, a silence she had never experienced before.
She resides in Perugia, Italy, together with my father. She was holding the phone out of the 7th-floor window to try and share such silence with me. It had to do with the lockdown, with people having stopped doing what they would usually be doing. I imagined she could not stand it because she is as hectic as me.
