Discard Your Isolation

You are not going home this evening without going out & about first.

Don't go to a movie. Don't go someplace where no one talks to each other.

Go to a coffeehouse that has boardgames and find someone to play something with you. Or try the senior center. Or chat with neighbors working in their yards. Or go to a bowling alley or ice rink and ask for some help improving your skills. Or a pub and improving your darts game. Or the grocery store and how to pick a good avocado. Walk through the dog park and see if someone will let you throw a ball for their enthusiastic puppy. Visit the bookstore and ask for recommendations from other customers.  Go to the coffee shop at a museum and find someone who'll take you to their favorite piece and tell you why they like it. Pretend to be a tourist and ask people to tell you the best place to hang out in your town.

Do not come home until you've had at least 3 interesting conversations.
