CHICAGO — Thanks to the pandemic, working from home and over Zoom is a new reality for many in 2023.

But sometimes things can seem a little weird at times when people are meeting for the first time virtually. Yet one consultant has a way to break the ice – and it starts with shoes.

That thought is one that was discussed by the hosts on the WGN Morning News on the “9@9” segment on Tuesday morning as they gave their thoughts on the unique ice-breaker.

We also discussed how to save wilted lettuce, the return of outlet mall popularity, a Blackhawks legend’s mansion up for sale, the most boring day in US history, and more during the segment.

You can watch the entire “9@9” segment from April 11 show in the video above.
