anecdoche

dictionaryofobscuresorrows:

n. a conversation in which everyone is talking but nobody is listening—each telling stories of their grandparents, their funny dog story, their embarrassing high school memory—together overlaying disconnected words like a game of Scrabble, each player borrowing bits of other anecdotes as a way to increase their own score, until we all run out of things to say.
