My daughter was, once again, an orientation counselor at her college. As an orientation counselor, she needs to go through training on a variety of things, one of which is ice breakers.
I kind of love these ice breakers. As someone who has trouble interacting with people I don’t know, I think they are invaluable. As someone who often struggles with small talk even amongst family, I think they are cute. At our dinner table each night I used to make all of us say our high and low point of the day. It was a reminder that we all have good and bad moments, but we can choose how we get over them.
This years ice breaker:
Chow Wow Meow
Chow- Something good you ate
Wow- Something that amazed you
Meow- Something cute
For me, if I were to think back to yesterday, mine would be as follows:
Chow: I met up with friends at a diner. My club sandwich came with perfectly cooked fries (for me perfectly cooked means steak fries that are just slightly overfried)
Wow: I saw Eugene and Dan Levy talk about their new book last night. Amazed at how the audience knew more about Schitt’s Creek than they did. And I sat next to a superfan. When I get the hearing back in my left ear there will be a blog about that.
Meow: My daughter’s sorority did the “Big” reveal over the weekend. They “wrapped” the bigs under sheets and had the littles unwrap them. I know it sounds odd but it was really cute in the pictures.
