Keep It 100

Awkward Airplane

Just the tip: don’t say what you think people wanna hear, say what’s real.

For example:

Say you’re awkwardly sitting by someone you’re attracted to on a plane, awaiting takeoff.  Instead of pointing out the lil’ window, vomiting: “Boy, it sure is cloudy out,” why not just go, “I really wish I could think of something interesting to say to you.”

Right?  Like, that’s real.  It’s vulnerable.  It’s attractive.  It’s memorable.

A good way to be in life.  Ditto business.

Cory Johnson: likes bumping #OnRepeat through the Bang & Olufsen sound system in his naturally aspirated V10; post-workout pumps; big boobs; dumb comedy; and your mom’s potato salad. He hates awkward handshakes. But who cares? Let’s talk about you.
