G-dog shares a story of how he saw someone at the shopping centre he hadn't seen since high school, and he decided to rather not approach them. Why? Well, he insists it was just easier than having to engage in small talk.

"If we were never actually close, it's so uncomfortable for me to put myself through the unbearable small talk routine, rather we nod in acknowledgment and keep it moving," says G-dog.
