Thank you Darren @ The Arty Plantsman for nominating me for this challenge!
Here are the rules:

- Post one quote per day for 3 consecutive days
- Nominate three new bloggers each day (just 2 bloggers for today!)
I am always saying “Glad to’ve met you” to somebody I’m not at all glad I met. If you want to stay alive, you have to say that stuff, though.
— J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
This quote from The Catcher in the Rye made me think about the ways that we greet each other. Though it is a bit of a pessimistic quote, I like that it does hold some truth (and delivers it with a humorous punch.) Here in the Western world, it is a routine to say “it’s nice to meet you” to each new person that we meet. Sometimes I mean it and sometimes (to be honest!) I don’t. However if it is said on such a routine basis, does this decrease the meaning of these words?
No worries if you don’t do like to do these types of challenges. On the other hand, if you want to do this challenge, consider yourself nominated!
