Re: 'Did your friends tell you to say that to me?' Contingency.
Whitedragon is right. You shouldn't really think past the opener and learn to calibrate. And openers don't have to be clever. However I'm going to humor your opener because I think you can work with it somehow.
My guess it would work 10x better if you are looking at your phone, look up at her, and say that. Like you JUST learned it when walking by her. Follow it up with "I love learning useless shit with my smartphone. People don't appreciate the power of instant information in their hand. What kind of phone you have?...."
That's just off the top of my head. But I know EVERYONE likes to talk about their phones. There's a study that showed people spend more time picking out the right smartphone than a new car. Hey! Another useless fact! Cool!
I like the chicken or the egg. Which came first? The egg duh. In Asia there is a red jungle fowl who mated with a grey jungle fowl which made the first chicken egg after crossbreeding. True.
