BounceGiggle  At Kindergarten age, my son used to walk up to older (say, 8-y-o) blondes and say, "I have a pony".  I have tried to keep an eye on him ever since.   Wink

Just out of curiosity, does your family really have a pony?  Either way, that's an awesome pick up line!

Yes. Several.  And he did have one of his own.  How he figured out at that age that a pony could be a babe magnet, I will never know.

If they are coming into my house I say "I bid jew vellcome"

If it's nighttime I say "Good eevahning."

If they are bleeding I just stare and lick my lips.

For people I don't know, a nod or a little salute, for casual acquaintances or friends I usually give the middle finger  Twirling but if they are good friends and if I'm really happy to see them, a hug. Family I always hug.

It depends, could be a variation of "Hello", "Hi, How Are You?"or "How Ya Gettin' On?" depending on the place and situation. Usually I'll talk to people who are in work clothes or seem really down to Earth with the "How Ya Gettin' On?", sometimes I'll add by', sometimes I won't. If I was meeting someone who seems refined and classy or an older gentleman, it would probably be a polite "Hello", usually with women it's "Hi" sometimes with the How Are You?, sometimes not. Older women I usually also say the polite "Hello".

I tend to hug and kiss family on the cheek usually as they arrive and leave. Strangers I tend to give a polite head nod in most social settings. As a Canadian and Newfoundlander, I'm obsessively polite most of the time but once I get to know you and I'm comfortable, I tend to really loosen up and the Newfie dialect tends to work its way into conversation more and more. If I have a visitor in my home, I will always ask them if they want a drink of water and offer them something to eat. I'll at the very least inquire if they want any such refreshment. My parents when they have visitors, even door to door salesmen, will have them come in and join them for a damn fine supper if I do say so. They're about the friendliest people I've ever known in my entire life. My grandfather would even invite Jehovah's Witnesses in and have coffee or tea with them when he was alive. Newfoundlanders tend to be well known for their friendliness.

I have to admit, when I've travelled to the Maritimes, I found the people so hospitable it almost made me uncomfortable. Never been to Newfoundland, but I was blown away by the hospitality in New Brunswick.

I've always been an extrovert and meeting new people is fun for me.  My mother told me that I would walk up to anyone when I was a little boy and talk to them.  It was frustrating for her because she had to keep a constant eye on me.

My 4 year old is the social butterfly of any playground.  I sit back and marvel at his skills.

I see that as an indication that we have raised confident, secure, happy individuals.  Thumbup

A gentleman in a tailored 3-piece suit, carrying an expensive briefcase and looking very successful watched my son on a city bus, doing his smile and hi-how-are-ya! routine for one-and-all: the man turned to me and said, "That boy will be Prime Minister one day!"   TeddyR

hi
Due to my work(i work with severely disabled children) i find that tactile communication is more liked than a "hello" or "hi" so that said i am a habitual hugger.If you get within 5ft of me and i know or like you then you are gonna get hugged.I also teach martial arts to young children and when one of my pupils wins a competition they run like hell cause they know they are gonna get hugged.I am told by people that i am quite friendly and easy to approach but i can be quite aloof and truth Be told i am quite a shy guy..

Wow.  How old is that boy now?  And do you watch him closely?  :)
