Like another tricky topic ‘A Friendship Tested’, ‘Faking it’ resulted in a thought provoking session as we dissected the meaning of the phrase and speculated as to whether a degree of faking, or ‘fudging’, is necessary to smooth the workings of society, our working lives, family life and friendships. We heard stories of faking it when listening to people at election time with different political values; of faking it to disguise emotional reactions during a nursing career; stories from two of our aviators of ‘fudging’ (if not faking) it related to flying an aircraft, and more.
Our topic for July 18th 1.30 to 3.30 pm is ‘Advice’ - Tell us about one piece of advice that’s stuck with you. It could be a famous quote or proverb, something your mum told you, or helpful words from a stranger. Did you follow the advice, or wished you had? Did it help or lead you astray?
Our next café catch up, on Monday July 4th between 2.30 and 3.30 pm, will be at the Northo, as Somewhere has closed for a winter recess.
