@HallowMoonshadow That’s a good way to describe it. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but “a colder air” is an apt analogy. It used to be like walking into a pub and hanging out with a bunch of your mates — not everyone agreed but we all just blew off some steam, release some stress, laugh, swap tales, and talk about games, life, and whatever was on our minds.
We’d be like those guys at the pub debating with each other for the 100th time whether Michael Jordan was the greatest player of all time or is it Lebron James.
Then someone pipes up and says it’s gotta be Kobe Bryant. Then the old guy says we’re all crazy because if you’d seen Wilt Chamberlain play back in the day then you’d know he was the GOAT.
We’d smile, laugh, roll our eyes maybe, and slap each other on the back at the end of the day, and say “see ya tomorrow buddy.” Now it’s a little more like being at a work party — it’s still great to see your mates, but some participants are a little cold to one another, or avoid each other entirely, and aren’t really engaged so much, just sitting in the corner drinking some punch.Read more on pushsquare.com
