When I was talking to a coworker about data that I needed for a report, we started talking about various topics. It turned out that someone was IM'ing him (well, a BOSS was IM'ing him), so he begged off of the conversation. I said to him, "Of course! We are now simply confabulating." And off the phone we were.


Work this into your vocabulary when you are having a simple conversation with someone. I know you can do it!
