Conversations with Garrett (2) - "Unsolicited Advice"

Legend: C = Cess; G = Garrett; X = one of G’s classmates
Scene: In the car on the way home from school on a rainy Friday.

G: X always gives me advice. And sometimes I don’t like it. I told him he should not scald his tongue in other’s people’s broth.
C: Meaning?
G: That he should mind his own business.
C: So what did X say?
G: Well, he said that minding other people’s business is his business.
C: What kind of advice does he give you?
G: He said that I should not contradict an opinion, because it’s only an opinion.
C (laughs): That’s a very logical advice. X must be very smart.
