As an introvert I thought that this was a great article and was surprised to see that I actually ask some of this question such as:
“What did you do today?” and “What’s the most interesting thing that happened at work today?”
just because the regular “how are you?” and “how was work today?” are boring make me lose interest in the conversation!
