Here's a really interesting exercise.  Eaves-drop.  Listen in.  Snoop.  Sit in a cafe or anywhere you can easily hear other people's conversations, and start writing the dialogue.

Not only does it put you in touch with a different kind of dialogue, it may give you a really great idea for a story.

If you want, you can post, in the Playwright's Gym - Feedback section.  Or work something from what you hear.

Don't get caught.

Great idea. That's what Tarantino did (allegedly) when coming up with dialogue for Pulp Fiction.
