You should say:Who this person is
Well, I was told never to speak to strangers since the first I left home by myself, so I hardly speak to any stranger, and I am cold to anyone who tries to start a conversation with me, but there was an exception. I had an interesting and happy conversation with a guy on the train.
It’s about two years ago when I was on the train leaving from Hangzhou to my hometown. I tried to have a snap as usual, for there was nothing interesting on the way. On half way, however, I got up and looked around. The guy sitting next me playing with his phone caught my attention. He was enjoying the game Angry Bird and when I caught sight of his fingers, I could not help speaking with him. According to the traditional Chinese medicine, the crescent-like white stuff in one’s fingernail stands for one's health. The bigger crescent stuff one has, the healthier he is. Unluckily, only my thumbs enjoy the stuff, which, I found, covered all his fingers, attracting me immediately.
Then I asked what he usually did to enjoy so much stuff, and he said maybe it got down to his playing basketball everyday at school. It turned out that both he and I were new graduates who came to hunt a job in Hangzhou. Then we talked a lot about our experience of finding a job, what we gained during the past weeks, and what difficulty we face to adapt to working. We enjoyed the chat until the radio broadcasting that the train would stop at Jinhua where he went to visit his relatives, and we changed our telephone numbers and said goodbye. The conversation with him made the boring trip enjoyable.
I ’ m going to talk about an interesting conversation that I had a couple of weeks ago in a music shop. I was walking along one of the main shopping streets in the city centre, when a large window displaying all sorts of musical instruments caught my eye. Out of curiosity, I decided to go in and have a look around.
The person I ended up speaking to was a shop assistant on the second floor, in the area of the shop dedicated to acoustic guitars. I hadn ’ t intended to speak to anyone, but the assistant approached me in a friendly way and asked whether I had any questions.
I explained to the assistant that I hadn ’ t played the guitar for years, but that I wondered what the differences were between the various acoustic guitars on show. He talked to me about the different makes and models, whether they were factory or hand made, the woods and varnishes used, the variation in sound quality, and of course the price range.
I found the conversation fascinating because the shop assistant was so knowledgeable. It was obvious that he had a passion for the guitar, and he didn ’ t mind talking to me even though I had made it clear that I didn ’ t intend to buy anything. He even picked up and played three or four of the instruments to demonstrate the differences in their sound.
