The Ninja Art of Conversation Redirecteth: Jennifer Aniston

Conversation is an art.  Clandestinely redirecting a conversation or sneaking in specific information you want the other person to know takes Ninja-like stealth.  It’s an art I have never mastered.  I throw information into conversations with blunt force.

Cases in point:
Friend: “This is some weather.  10 years in Sacramento and I still can’t get used to the heat.”
Me: “Look at me, new earrings.”

Friend: “I’m hungry.  Where should we go for lunch?”
Me: “Look at me, new shoes.”

Conversations become immensely more painful if I’ve had a recent breakup…
Friend: “Why is it so hard to find a pair of jeans that fit right?”
Me: “Kyle wore jeans…”

Friend: “I’m hungry.  Where should we go for lunch?”
Me: “Kyle ate food…”

Jennifer Aniston, however, seemed have achieved Ninja status in conversation redirecteth and information sneaketh.  Six years since her divorce from Brad Pitt, she still manages to bring him up.  Jennifer was recently interviewed on “Inside Actors Studio” by James Lipton (whom we all know is a “gotcha” kind of tabloid reporter who asks misleading questions).  When asked about her role in the movie The Breakup with Vince Vaughn, she responded her own breakup with Brad drew her to the film.

“It was just a beautiful human story about this couple breaking up, and I could kinda, you know… I was slightly familiar with the topic and issue, and so I honestly felt like, what a great way to sort of exercise some of that,” Jennifer revealed in excerpts of the interview released by Bravo.

I hope my current relationship lasts and I never go through another breakup.  But if I do, I’ll know how to redirect the conversation better.

Friend: “My computer crashed again!  That’s it, I’m getting a new one.”
Me: “I can sympathize with your breakup with your computer.  My own breakup was just a beautiful human story about a couple breaking up.”
