So far today, I've been to the high school, the bank, the grocery store, the newspaper office, and a fast food restaurant.
9 people have asked me how I was. Each time, I smiled and told them I was Great! and asked how they were. They, if they bothered to respond, were also Great! Even the guy with two broken fingers on his dominant hand.
Nine times, today, I felt like the only real response would have been "Shitty! But, hey, thanks for askin'!"
