Okay, when waiting in the hallway at someone's office, take out any quarters you might have in your pocket (okay, so this maybe more geared towards the men in the audience). Pick two state quarters at random. Find the connection, or make one up. The more obscure or fantastical the better.
For me, just fifteen minutes ago: Arkansas and Nevada. The connection is both have major advertising campaigns on TV (Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and Camp Vegas). Edited per anonymous comment RTJ Golf Trail is in Alabama. Checked my quarters and that was the one (instead of Arkansas). Well, it's been a long week.
There you go. Your brain doesn't have to go to sleep.
