The Nod

Or wink, or smile, or “Hey.”

What is the name for these sub-meeting greetings? By ‘sub-meeting’ I mean the situations where you pass someone by in the office and you make eye contact. You are not meeting them, so there is no need for a full blown hand shake or similar. Something needs to pass between you besides the dead fish look that could be mistaken for disdain or contempt. It has to be some sort of plenitude that allows you to keep on walking.

I am aggressive in my sub-meeting greetings, but I think I may be a little eccentric. I am not sure. I know boredom is the greatest enemy, so I try to keep things interesting. Perhaps some practical jokes are the answer? Hmmm.
