Salut! Comment vont les choses?


Explanation:
Juste une autre suggestion, une que j'emploie souvent lorsque je rencontre quelqu'un. Aussi, je dis souvent "Allô" au lieu de "salut", qui me semble un peu masculin.
L'expression anglaise "Hey!" est prise dans ce cas comme la deformation maintenant très à la mode de la salutation "Hi!" (Bonjour, ou Allô, ou Salut).
J'aime bien aussi la suggestion déjà faite par d'autres de "Quoi de neuf?" qui est une expression très commune et très usitée.
