On Being Invited into a Secret Society

I’ve been intrigued lately by the salutatory phrase, “What’s the good word?” as in:

Me: “Hey {Person I Know}.”

{Person I Know}: “Hey Phil. What’s the good word?”

I hear this quite a bit, and I’m beginning to wonder if there is, in fact, a “good word”.  That if I SAY the “good word” to this person I might win something, or better yet be invited into some kind of secret society, whereby I can then ASK people for the “good word.”  From now on, when asked this question, I may just try random “good words”.  Probably gonna start with something out of the Psalms or a Toni Morrison novel.  Those folks can write!
