Well, I think that that went well

People throughout the world are having to relearn the art of small-talk, now that shops and offices are beginning to open.

The population, used to grunting, not getting out of their pyjamas until mid-morning, and going to bed early, will have to relearn all of the social niceties that they all knew before lockdown began.

Expert Speaking Nicely told us: 'Being pleasant to people is a skill we have to relearn. Talking about the weather, asking your unpleasant boss what type of weekend they had, they are all things we did before, and no doubt they will all be things we do again.'

So, there you have it. Be nice, and the world will be nice to you. If you believe that, then you will believe anything.
