How about...no..that might be too strange—but just maybe...
My mother talks to squirrels. I talk to people, lets chat.
My mother talks to squirrels.
This non sequitur ending to my portfolio stemmed from a Copywriting exercise in George Felton's advanced copy class. We were to write two pick-up lines. Having never been someone to use pick-up line, or having been someone they are used on I was really at a loss. What do you say in a pick-up line?
Something cute? Passionate? Intelligent?
I'm not certain, but I can't imagine what I wrote was any of those things. So I went for something that while it was not sexy or inspiring, it certainly got your attention. To my amazement Mr. Felton next class said it was probably one of the few, that while odd, drew his interest and left him wondering what a date would be like with a person who wrote that unique phrase.
I imagine it would be fun, witty, and full of interesting conversation. Talking to a Chema can be quite that way.
This phrase works as a closing statement for a portfolio, but what do I say to start the conversation?
I think I will merely start with Hello and go from there.
