Not well.

There I was, standing at the counter to hand my purchase and my money over, when the young lass on the other side, cheerfully said ”And How are you today? “ So I cheerfully replied, "Not too bad thanks!”
Then I wondered to myself, “Well that was both a stupid question by her, and an equally stupid, not too mention, incorrect answer by me.” After all, if I were well, would I be in a Chemist (Pharmacy/Apothecary) paying good money for medication for myself?
Yes, silly indeed, but how often do we all answer blithely and without thinking, the questions of others? Even to the point of saying, all is well, even when it is obviously not?
Just a little reminder to all here, and especially myself, that next time, before I speak, I stop, think and mean what I say! Will you try that too? Good for you!

I see you got a case of the spammers. Time for you to set up comment moderation. *hugs* Hope they go away soon. And by the way, I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh dear God, it feels so good to have my own computer back, fixed free of charge by me, the bf and a geek/tech neighbor. Now I know how to do it though. *screech* but the reformat was kinda scary.
