I saw my colleague all dressed up for his routine evening jog as I walked out of my office.


Me: “Wow! Going for a jog?”

Colleague: “Yes!”

(awkward silence)

Me: “I apologies for the uninteresting question. Of course you’re going for a jog! You are all dressed up in sporting attire!”

Colleague: “I could be off for badminton…”


I think my colleague is being kind. I could be such a terrible conversationalist at times.
