If you’re tired of reading books about how to break the ice in conversation, look no further than College Humor’s “Small Talk” calendar. It divides the week into three simple questions that will work every time: Sunday through Tuesday is, “How was your weekend?” Hump day makes it fair game to ask about upcoming weekend plans, leaving Friday and Saturday to jump right into the good stuff, “What are you doing tonight?” For those who master the Holy Trinity, the calendar’s monthly topics require tuning into the weather for September’s summer theme, and October’s Halloween question requires a pop culture check-in to see who the hottest reality TV star is (unless the GTL crew wins again this fall).%image_alt%
