Topics I never get tired of talking about.
Hmmm, I taught history for 27 years. World history, U.S. History, New Mexico history, military history. I write historical novels. My wife rolls her eyes and tells anyone around us if history comes up and says, “Don’t get him started.”
Books: Why I love Top Ten Tuesdays and Wednesday Challenge is it’s all about books and talking about them. In fiction there’s: children’s books, young adult, science fiction, fantasy, murder mystery, thrillers, horror, romance, erotica, historical and more that all of us share our likes and dislikes.
Non-fiction: the topics are as endless as topics people are interested in. I like history, science, psychology, sociology, how to, gardening, and others as they pop up and catch my eye.
Faith: I’m willing to share my faith, if asked or the topic comes up, but I don’t force my beliefs on others and resent when someone tries to force theirs on me.
Here’s a tip to all the women who wonder, “How do you get a man to talk to you and share what’s on their mind?” My mother told this to my wife, and I wish she hadn’t? Mom told her to, “Put a paint brush in my hand, and while we’re painting the outside of the house or the inside, I’ll talk my head off.”
Do you have any idea how many times we’ve painted the house in the last forty years? It would have been so much cheaper and less time consuming if she’d said, “Pick a topic, ask a question and let me pontificate.”
