Speaking My Language

I was reminded again on the weekend just how good it is to catch up with people who talk the same language you do. I don’t mean English, I mean people who have a similar interest who know exactly what you mean when you use words that most people don’t quite get.

I had a few of my cycling mates over on Saturday night to see a stage of the Tour de France and it was so good to launch into conversations about cycling that didn’t require any explanation of the terminology. Don’t get me wrong, I love spreading the cycling message and helping others understand the finer points but there’s something special about talking with like minded people isn’t there?

Do you find that with any of your interests? Do you enjoy conversations when everyone’s on the same wavelength.

Oh well … the tour’s over for another year. Roll on Tour de France 2011.
