I think it is funny how we like to state the obvious. Things that are so… there, so glaringly in-your-face; it serves almost no purpose having to bring them up in the first place.
“Oh, so you’ve gone bald.”
“You’re here already!”
Granted it is to make idle conversations out of forced observations, but what use is it when all we want to do, really, is to just turn and walk away?
We put on these little acts for ourselves, smile polite smiles, please no one, and end up feeling like the silliest person on the planet for about two whole seconds.
Redundancies – there is enough of it to go around, but we just cannot get enough of it.
Some things are better left unsaid.
