A great conversation starter…

Imagine: You’re catching up with a dear friend over a mug of something warm. You’ve already run through the past week and a half of activities, all the annoying things your boss has said recently, and your thoughts on a new-to-you podcast. You’re not ready to part ways just yet but…topics are waning.

What do you do?

May I make a recommendation? Why not ask…

What’s the best thing you’ve won?

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, one of my New Year’s resolutions was to ask more thought- or conversation-provoking questions, and this one has quickly become a favorite.

Ask your partner when you’re out on a date. Ask your co-workers in those just-got-to-work moments when no-one wants to actually start working just yet. Ask all the guests at a dinner-party and go around the room taking turns telling all. (Hey, it’s not bragging when everybody’s doing it!)

The answers may surprise you.

And YO! There’s no reason I have to keep my convo-startin’ questions IRL, is there? So I wanna know, dear reader (THAT’S YOU!): What’s the best thing you’ve won? COMMENT BELOW and tell me everything.

  1. That is a really interesting question! It immediately makes me think about the tickets I won to Cirque du Soleil and the crazy trip my roommate and I had to make home from that event when all of the freeways were shut down for construction. What stories! This question really can bring up great topics of conversation.

    Another great question I’ve heard to ask people is “Have you done any traveling lately? Where did you go?”

    1. Yes, I love the little “spin-off” stories that come out!

      Love the travel question, too. I’ll definitely start working it into my (nosy) repertoire. LOL!

  2. When i was 25 i won a trip to L.A. My very first trip by airplane and abroad! It was the best gift ever!

  3. Definitely a great conversation starter! As for the question, I don’t win many things so best thing I’ve probably won is a scratch ticket lol!

  4. Ohh nice convo starter indeed! Best thing I’ve won… hmmm a Volleyball Tournament Championship Title counts right? Yup! I was a member of a champion team back in highschool. so yeah.

  5. Wow. I never really thought about the best thing that I have won. This is a great conversation starter. I will have to think about this.

  6. I don’t think I’ve ever asked anyone this question. But of I’d have to answer it, it’d probably be winning a pinata for drinking the most chili beer at a Cinco De Mayo beer festival.
