Small talk

A work event last night, food and cocktails following. A small but friendly crowd, so easy to mingle and be pleasant and chatty without feeling overwhelmed. (We're talking about my own social anxiety here, folks, not that of the deal-makers for whom I arranged this event, who were in their element, but still likely wished there were more potential clients.) At one point I was standing with a couple of colleagues and two attorneys and the subject of global warming came up and I actually made an excuse to walk away as is started down the road of denial. Points for me, but seriously, aren't these people smart enough to know not to discuss political or otherwise charged issues in a business setting? Unless they assume that all highly-paid NYers are conservative Republicans. And maybe they are.
