Reply To: "Deep thoughts" opener
That’s correct. Meaning, if there is something that works better for you than Deep Thoughts, you should use it. Just remember that the objective is the conversation you want to have, not the conversation that will magically arise out of random banter. If you don’t have any trouble transitioning to that conversation, more power to you. I, and students I’ve taught, have found that it’s easier to transition to that edgier, sexier, more challenging conversation when you say the same thing each and every time.
