“Our brisket is stupid, but you should totally get the fried catfish because it’s freakin’ bomb.”
I’m not sure those are words I would use to describe menu items, but I love that our server Saturday night used them. It wasn’t just an endorsement of the menu and the chefs, it was a picture into who she was a person. I watched her personality come through in every interaction she had with customers, colleagues, and the chefs. It was fun. And it was a reminder that authenticity comes through in many different ways – including the words we use in conversations.
Choose your words carefully, or strategically when you choose from this list of sports conversation starters to use in small talk this week.
