Say Less

On this week’s episode, Ashley and Marcy talk awkward conversations. “So when are you going to give me a grandbaby?” “Looks like you’re picking up a little weight, huh?” “Where did your last boyfriend go?” “You still haven’t graduated?” 

Is it just us or are you also overwhelmed by people trying to engage you in the most uncomfortable of small talk? It can feel like a dangerous game of dodgeball, trying to avoid the painful (and intrusive) babble with tact, grace, and while not catching a case. Listen up as Marcy and Ashley provide tested strategies to help you navigate the most awkward of conversations while silently wishing some people would just say less.
