Here’s a conversation I overheard at a swimming pool:
Small child: What’s your favorite color, Grandma?
Grandma: Blue. What’s yours?
Small child: Green. What was the scariest thing that’s ever happened to you, Grandma?
Grandma: Probably when Grandpa and I were asphyxiated and Grandpa died and I almost did.
Here’s a conversation starter I overheard at my house last month:
Five: Want to play head vs. butt? I’ll be the head…
Want to be part of the ideamensch conversation? They’re taking their conversation with entrepreneurs live with a 48-state tour Road Trip for people with ideas. If you’d like to attend their Chicago event this Thursday August 16th from 6pm-9pm you can use the coupon code “LTYM” to get $5.00 off a ticket. I’m not being paid to promote their event, I’m just attempting at menschkeit (and in saying so, failing).
Speaking of menschkeit, I want to thank mamadrama.com and porgyandbessonbroadway.com for treating me and several other bloggers to the incredible Tony-award winning show last weekend. The voices (Audra Macdonald! Norm Lewis! David Alan Grier!), the talent, Ohhhh the gorgeous be-muscled men singing glorious harmony! Could make an opera fan of me yet. If you’ll be in NYC I highly recommend. Bring tissues—and a fan (SIZZLE).
