How a Lebanese Conversation Starts

Each time, two Lebanese persons meet, this is how their conversation starts for around half an hour (and it gets on my nerves!):


P1: Hi

P2: Kifak?

P1: Mni7?

P2: Kello Tamem?

P1: Cava?

P2: meche l 7al?

P1: Bien?

P2: Good?


And it keeps going like this to cover all the “How are you” synonyms in all known languages until one of them surrenders (shame on him) and says:

‘Mni7 w enta?’

Common people! Listen to each other and try acting interested in knowing the answer!
