Don't just state the facts, insert some humor or deliver an anecdote.  You'll keep the interviewer engaged while showing that you could always relate to others easily, a sure-tick for any board of employers. 

"People always remember stories you tell them," says resume expert Rick Gillis. "Obviously, the first tenet is to be honest – do not ever make up a story or an anecdote – but if you can wrap a humorous tale around an example of how you tackled a business problem, solved it and came away with new knowledge and experience, you'll definitely make a great impression," he says.
