No matter how much you wrap up in the winter, you’re never completely safe. This passer-by had it all planned: boots for the snow, big coat for the cold and a hat to keep his ears warm.
Only, he was surprised by a big gust of wind. In Scotland, the weather is always a matter of surprise. Surely, because it changes all the time!
My Scottish grandfather taught me that talking about the weather is also a good way to break the ice. It’s a cultural code to know. It allows people to get to know each other, without disturbing one another.
In a Scottish bar, to find out if anyone wants to talk, speak to them about the weather. I tried. If they answer you, they’re ready for a good discussion !
