Deflection is a skill.
People who change the subject all the time can be exasperating. They can also be expert mind-controllers. Think about it the next time you’re talking to one of them, will you? Until tomorrow.
Changing the Subject
“Stop changing the subject, Joan!” Clive begged.
“Why would I do that when the subject…,” she paused “… likes to be changed?”
“That’s not what I meant!”
“So you like it when I change your thoughts?”
“I didn’t say that either!”
“Now who’s changing the subject?”
“I… You… don’t know.”
She was counting on that.
