What Do People Talk About?
All day every day people walk about talking to each other and listening. Mostly they are not angry. But they talk about things that make them angry, or distressed or worried, or which make them laugh.
They also make fun of each other, tell jokes, make fun of teachers and so on. They may even call each other names or do a bit of pushing around in a friendly sort of way.
