Each Friday, here at Prism Book Alliance® we will be tackling a very important topic… of sorts. Five Thing Friday… The topic will change each week, so be sure to check back. We encourage you to comment with your own Five Things!
Topic: Ways You Say Hello
We asked each of our reviewers to tell us about five ways you greet people
(or I just forget a greeting all together an launch into whatever is on my mind…)
“How’s it goin’?”
“Hi! And how are you today?”
“Good morning!” Or
Physical greeting depends upon the person and our relationship. Usually a handshake if I don’t know them well, or a hug if more familiar. Kiss if very familiar 😉
With strangers: a nod and “Hallo” or “Guten Tag”
with customers: a handshake and “Guten Tag, was kann ich für Sie tun?”
with friends: a handshake or a pat on the arm and “Hi”
with close friends: a hug and “Hi, wie geht’s, schön dich zu sehen”
with family: a hug and a kiss on the cheek
How goes it
What’s shakin’, bacon
I’m from Germany and here is how I usually greet people:
The most common way is to simply say HI or HALLO, sometimes accompanied with a small HAND WAVE. If I meet with a good friend, we embrace and give us a SQUEEZY HUG, and if it is a formal occasion there will be a formal HANDSHAKE.
Where I lived before you could say MOIN at every hour of the day, but this was very local and people would look at me weird, would I do that now.
Hellloooooo (Seinfeld style)
These are the five ways I used to greet guys on Grindr
Hand clasp and cheek kiss (for women, gay men and close friends who might be either)
How ARE you?
Hey, sweetheart (embarrassing, but I really do this)
So what are your Five Things???
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
