On this board DG the friends have been constantly degraded and abused for gossiping.
You turn around and imply that gossip is good and normal communication.
You must be losing it!
I was giving one of the the dictionary definitions of the word "gossip": "light informal conversation for social occasions,"
It is true that "Gossip" can be abusive if it is of malicious intent,- but not all "gossip" fits that definition, -sometimes it is just "small talk."
As for myself, -I was never was one to enjoy "small talk," and thought it rather frivolous and unnecessary but I as get older have learned that it does serve the purpose of binding people together when used in a non-derogatory way.
Your assessment of my ability, "You must be losing it!" doesn't sound very much like you are really wishing me "Kind regards."

I had thought DMG was just having "a moment" with some of her comments lately. But her take on most things now seem to be unfluenced by Donald Trump and his view of the world. God help us if either were in positions of great power.
