I’ve seen people on other communities talk about how gunge is some sort of alien concept that no non-WAMmer would ever be able to understand or appreciate. I simply do not believe this is the case, and I’ve experienced very fun conversations about gunge with people who (as far as I could tell) aren’t WAMmers.
It basically boils down to six points, which I go into far more detail about on my blog.
- Bring it up when the conversation gives you a decent opening, rather than out of nowhere.
- Be confident.
- Keep it innocent.
- Expect the chat to be light-hearted in nature.
- Let the topic go at some point.
- Although usually you’ll have a pleasant conversation, not everyone will like talking about gunge. If that happens, respect that and move on.
Hopefully this will help people.
I didn’t simply reblog this because when I tried, I accidentally reblogged to my own blog and now can’t do another reblog. Come on WordPress, why would anyone ever want to reblog stuff to the blog it originated on?
