I’ve noticed a serious flaw in the way my generation communicates. ‘What’s up’ is not a real question anymore and is more often than not followed by ‘not much’. It’s a thoughtless, redundant greeting. We’ve already exchanged hellos. Shall we graduate to more progressive topics? Notice that Grandpa never says ‘what’s up’.
THE NEW GREETING IS ‘WHAT DID YOU EAT TODAY?’ This is going to accelerate your daily conversations incredibly. Real talk.
Want to know what I ate today?
Well, I woke up and ate some greek yogurt, but first I put Honey Nut Cheerios in the yogurt. Crazy, right? Then I went to a potluck at work where there was just a myriad of food. I had a sloppy joe and a piece of carrot cake. This one woman I work with makes the best treats from scratch. For my birthday she made lemon cake and it was absolute perfection. Hmmm.. Then I went to class, did mediocre on a final, and came home. I was pretty beat, so I just ate an entire box of Spongebob Squarepants-shaped Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. Yeah, for some reason I only like the shaped kind. Why is it still called macaroni and cheese even though it’s no longer a macaroni noodle?
We are now best friends!
