"How are you?" Do you have an original response?
Or have you heard a response that you consider original and impressive? Thanks for sharing.
Alhamdu Lillah, in Arabic. Translation: Thanks be to God (For the state I am in, bad or good). I like this answer and I use it.
I was just talking to my son about this last week and jokingly said that the next time someone asks me how I am, I should respond with a line from the kids movie Sky High and reply, "Regrettably I have made boom boom."
i'm content and happy. i have a new baby and my oldest son is coming home from Calgary for holidays and i haven't seen him in over a year.
The most amusing answer I've heard to this question was when I was at the local gas station paying for soda. It was a very hot and humid day. Lot's of customers stopping for drinks or ice cream - the store was super busy. I asked the clerk "how are you" and his reply "I'm just living the dream." I loved that he could share his sense of humor in his very busy day. Great question!
Just another day in paradise! (Used when asked by my chain of command.)
Back in high school, a friend of mine said, that she always knew I was her friend because when I asked her this question of yours, I would stop and listen to the answer. So... I learned that my ability to listen was considered more important than the actual question.
On a lighter note, I like my dad's answer to this, he says in a booming voice to all within hearing distance, known and unknown folks included: "SUPER and GETTING BETTER!" He gets excellent service in restaurants, gas stations, you name it! and lots of smiles too.
I usually say, "If I was any better I couldn't stand myself. How about you?"
Sometimes when someone asks how I am I answer....Not too shabby.
What I really can't stand though, is when someone asks you how you are, and as you start to answer them, they're already walking away, and didn't even really want to know how I was. I don't ask someone how they are unless I really want to know How They Are!
I like "Fair to Middlin' " myself.
It's not fabulous but not terrible either
Well , if you are really interested, pull up a chair and I'll tell you.
I kind of like this one....
"Do you have an hour?"
That kind of causes the one who asks to pause and look at you like
"I am sorry I asked."

Burger King's old slogan, "Have it Your Way," has got me thinking. What would life be like if I had it my way?I think I would be able to support myself on writing alone (although I realize the universe needs me to be a teacher right now). I would have enough money to travel...
