Everyone has a story, and asking those two questions are ways to bring it out.

Conversation starters - everyone has a story
At a recent dinner my association president asked each at the table to tell something interesting about themselves others might not know. Responses included owning a fleet of Harleys; serving as accountant in Travelgate scandal; spending month in Peru with naked tribe; to riding a paddle boat 3 times a day for past 10 years - except when water completely freezes - and often bringing along ducks (pic). Other question - a unique manufacturing place they toured - learned about Cape Cod potato chip factory, Cranberry World, Cadbury chocolates, others. Group definitely got to know each other better, and conversation interesting.
