I was just told someone was coming over and I'm terrible at starting conversation. What are some good conversation starters?

You can offer them a beverage and snacks.  πŸ°πŸ‡πŸ§€β˜•οΈ  That can get you talking about food.  Ask about favorite comfort food when it's cold, etc.  Asking questions about simple things like these preferences aren't prying or overly personal.

Have fun!

Antelopes, what's up with antelopes? Like who decided to name an animal after a fruit? I imagine someone eating a cantaloupe and seeing one in the wild in Africa for the first time and going yup.. That's antelope. Cantaloupe, antelope, cantaloupe, antelope,cantaloupe,antelope.

I just usually tell them about all the crazy mistakes I have made all week,  and pretty well just make fun of myself,  and that usually keeps the conversation going for hours!!!  Always offer them a beverage and just put some type of snacks in a bowl and things will go just fine :)
