Here’s an icebreaker I’ve been using for years – finally thought to take the picture to go with it, and found a willing victim in Boulder City yesterday.
Someone walks by, or walks in with a ‘boot’ on. I’ll sneak up to them and ask “Don’t you just hate it…….when you go somewhere nice……….and when you get there, you realize………..you’re wearing odd shoes?”
This lady was with her husband, so I then asked her whether she sustained the injury because she kicked him for snoring. She had a great come-back. “No, but I can now!”
April one year I had that conversation then asked the lady what she’d done. She said she’d had a new ankle the prior July, but it had broken again. Oh, I asked – is it still under warranty?
