I Can Talk For Hours About. . .
Although I enjoy visiting, it doesn’t seem like I spend as much time talking as I do listening. But get me onto a favorite topic and I can talk your ears off (provided you don’t die of boredom because you don’t share my enthusiasm). So for today’s 30 Days of Lists, here are the subjects that I can talk about for hours. They will not come as a surprise to any of you, since I also blog about them frequently!
Books – at a previous job, one of the consultants loved to read as much as I did and very often read the same books too. We had to be careful to not talk too long as we both enjoyed comparing notes and making recommendations.
Dogs – I can never tell or hear too many dog stories. They are an endless source of cute, frustration, and affection.
Photography – I don’t meet many photographers who are as advanced as I am, outside of my favorite boy toy. So when I meet one, I can stand and talk forever about equipment, Adobe software, social media, and places to go for taking pictures. I had that happen a while back at the botanical gardens. The other photographer and I had a great time visiting and had to cut it short because the good light was leaving.
My Daughter – she’s the greatest and I love to talk about everything she’s up to. Last weekend, she participated in a mini-triathlon, placing in the middle of the pack (the only photos I have are copyrighted, so I cannot post them). Her skin tight clothes for the event just looked like she was a bit pudgy, not four months pregnant. When I was four months pregnant, I was already waddling from the bowling ball that was sticking out in front!
State Taxes – put me in a room with the consultants, and we can be swapping stories for hours. They like it as much as I do, mostly because I’m interactive with them and have good stories of my own. I enjoy being able to dissect the nuances behind various tax positions and events, especially with someone who knows as much or more than I do. It’s just plain old fun :)
How about you? What can you talk about for hours? Will I be surprised? Let me know!

I’d talk about all the blogs I read, family, birds…
I agree with you on that! I can talk for hours about those things too.
Oh yes, I can talk for hours about books too and my family (don’t get me started). After my daughter got married I carried a photograph album around with me wherever I went. My hubby became quite embarrassed when I actually took it out to show strangers on an elevator.The other thing I can talk for ours about is travelling, but I guess that is no surprise.
I don’t carry a photo album with me, but I send blog links to everyone! All of my consultants have seen the wedding pictures and birth announcements. I’ve also known quite a few of them for many years, so they don’t find it odd. And no, it doesn’t surprise me that you can talk for hours about your traveling. I’m glad you also spend hours writing it up to share with the rest of us!
