I laugh when my husband grabs the conversation

DEAR MISS MANNERS: My husband and I have a difference in conversational styles.

When someone speaks, I was raised to comment on their comments before adding new details from my own experiences.

For example, an acquaintance recalled her trip to Alaska and noted how long it stays bright there in the summer. My husband’s response was to tell her that when we went to Edinburgh, he found it easy to stay just as late there.

To me it sounds like a unique task, but my husband does not see it that way. What do you think?
