“Hey there, how are you? Howya doing today?”
This is probably the most common opening line I get from people I meet. It breaks the ice, it makes the person look as if he cares for your well-being and of course, you are forced to answer something equally positive.
Unfortunately, the only thing I ever tell them is “Busy lor”.
I mean, what else can I say?
“I’m doing great man, the kids have grown up and I now enjoy holidays around the planet on my own time!”
“Absolutely fantastic, I just don’t know what to do with the $15,000 I earn every month.”
“Horrid. My mistress is bugging me, my casting agent keeps sending me SMSes and I don’t know what to do about being so handsome.”
“I feel flagellated. Don’t know what that means? Do I look like a dictionary to you?”
“I’m not sure, I just got my seminiferous tubules tied. Too fertile lah. And you?”
“Hey I’m fine. I don’t do anything at work, my maid is a real looker, my kids stay out all the time and I love my Gahmen! So you voting for them soon?”
