Question about English (US)

Imagine a situation - I need to ask if you can take me to an airport. I could ask you about it like this "Could you take me to the airport?". I would call this way of asking - "direct" Or I can say something like this "You know the weather is going to be lovely tomorrow. And it's so good to spend more time with your friends and....bla bla bla"and only after a few minutes of talking to ask about a real reason of my speech - "Could you take me to the airport?". So, how would you call this second way of asking? In Russian I would call it "start from the distance". Does it appeal to English too?
