First time in DC this week. Very cool town! Spoke for 3000 people at ASAE’s SpringTime Expo. The feedback from the audience was tremendous. One woman even said, “I’ve been coming here for 10 years and ALWAYS wanted to hear a speaker who talked about approachability!”
Sweet. That’s me!
I’ve got lots of other great tidbits to share with ya:
Random Cool Quotation Someone At ASAE Told Me
“What we learn with pleasure we never forget.”
The Slug Line
My new friend Bean told me about the famous DC Slug Lines, which I’d never heard of before:
Slugging is a term used to describe a unique form of commuting found in the Washington, DC area sometimes referred to as “Instant Carpooling” or “Casual Carpooling.” It’s unique because people commuting into the city stop to pickup other passengers even though they are total strangers! However, slugging is a very organized system with its own set of rules, proper etiquette, and specific pickup and drop-off practices.
Classic Flavored Answer to a Fruitless Question
As always, I asked the entire audience to answer the question, “How are you?” with a flavored answer instead of FINE. One man named John said, “Whenever people ask me how I’m doin, I always say, ‘Better looking than ever!'”
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
