Answer their question, with a question
It will throw them off completely and will place the conversation's power in your hands. Just remember to walk away at a natural, human, pace, when they are done answering.
Possible questions to ask include, but are not limited to; "What are your thoughts on Greta Thunberg?", "Do you feel as though technology has enabled or limited us from establishing a true, human connection?", "If you could be an emoji, which one would you be?", "Do you remember when the first batch of Skechers (fun fact: I always thought that Skechers was spelt with a "t") were invented?'"
