Talking to Strangers

“HOW TO PERFECT YOUR PARTY CONVERSATION SKILLS… SAY HELLO.” Maybe you already know how to talk to strangers, but in case you don’t, The School of Life (by way of the Daily Mail) provides a refresher. “Here’s some candy,” seems like a good opener, although they recommend “Who would your celebrity mum and dad be?” and “What era would you most liked to have lived in?” (For when you’re past introductions.)

Not bad, but what else? This is a serious question. “What’s the last illegal thing you did?” could be good. Let’s help one another.
