if you observe the nature of conversation you'll be surprised to find how they twist and turn and take new courses. The people involved (their personality, demeanor, posture, clothing, rhyhtm and cadence of speech) present a massive set of variables when it comes to communication. Segues are often not intrinsically linked to the part of speech before the change but more often the result of the persons mood, current situation.
We can argue...... with an opening remark about the weather and perhaps the conversation will peter out or it could wind on through a myriad of topics as the two discover common threads or latch to a theme or mood.
the length of the visit, the location, the attitudes of the people involved, and their individual personalities all play a part. Predicting conversation and the route it will take is extremely difficult.
I have no oppinion of the Fema camp issue but the idea the conversation came up between strangers I do not find unsurprising.
