I was on the last leg of my ride this morning, when a man walking a dog said "how are you?". I replied to him "Good, Good".
As I peddled off across the intersection I thought to myself....Good, Good. What the heck did I mean by that comment, Good, Good.
Did I mean to convey that I was REALLY GOOD, did I mean that I was OK, but could be better or did I mean I'm doing fine, thanks for asking. I began to think about the differnt responses that I give people through the course of the day and listed them out in my head. I wonder what people think when I respond with these different innocuous comments and what does that communicate to the person I'm responding to.
Some of my replies are so ambiguous that they left me thinking, "what the hell did I just say"? When you respond to someone who is asking you how you are think about your response. I find it totally funny to think about some of the responses that I have received and said.
Here are a few differnt responses that came to mind:
Just ducky....Yes there are people that say this as I do and I don't know why.
Just fine thanks
I'm standing aren't I
Well I made it out of bed to be here
I have a heartbeat
