Awkward office kitchen talk

I am blending coffee in my oldschool blender, aeropress ready next to it, when a coworker I’ve never talked to before comes in…

Coworker: (starting to wash his mug) Are you making coffee?
Me: Yes.
Coworker: Smells nice.
Me: Yeah, but it’s only regular coffee from a grocery store, nothing special…
Coworker: (finished washing, starting to dry the mug) Yeah, but still, freshly blended, smells nice.
Me: Thanks…?
Coworker: (dried his mug, leaving…) See you around! 🙂

That’s what I call unnecessary. Wouldn’t have silence just been better?
