“Hey, how are you doing, I’m fine. What’s up?”

THIS is a greeting you save for people you know but don’t want to let in, beyond a point; people you’re just getting to know; people who aren’t that interesting to you; people who are friends but not the kind of friends you wouldn’t spend a full day with; people you have to be civil to for whatever social politics you indulge in; and people who you work with or for. For anyone else who’s close and intimate and knows you better than most people and would probably give you a kidney or two if you asked for it, drop the formalities and jump directly into conversation.

“Bitch, I have news. Let’s talk.”

“You look like you have something to tell me. Spill.”

“I kissed a girl. I liked it.”

 

THESE are acceptable openers.
