Partyscope: Just Friends
Saying hello on the party circuit is its own kind of performance, especially when total strangers think they’re your best friend. Here are the most seasoned greeters.
Does a double handhold and shouts your name like a long-lost pal.
Covers his bases with “Nice to see you again” even if you’ve never met.
Shakes your hand lingeringly while leaning forward and gazing into your eyes. Sigh.
Hollers “Hey, darlin’!,” making you feel like her one and only.
Spots you across a crowded room and yells, “So, what are we doing next week?”
