"thanks, you too"
That works too. Never answer the question, just ask it right back, with a heavy emphasis on the word "you" so it sounds like an accusation.
I say, "I'm well. How are you?" (Or sometimes "I'm good. How are you?") I typically say well, but sometimes good creeps in if I'm tired or lazy. But the "How are you?" is a constant and indispensable to me. When someone asks how you are, it's only polite to ask how they're doing in return.
i have decided that if trump wins i will accept one american refugee into my home. but i will do all the cooking. it's not cus i'm good at, i just don't like fried mayo served on a sugary bed of salt
this was the wrong thread
Was it though?
I am doing well, thank you for asking.
If I am speaking to one of my Tribal Elders, it is: Miigwech niibwa, nminoyaa go
I'm super, thanks for asking.
I'd have thought a better tom reply would look like this:
"How are you today tom?"
Nah, tom's funnier than that.
Back to form I see harps, nice.
Back to huh?
I think you took that wrong, dude... that was a compliment to Tom, not a... whatever, to you.
"I'm doing pretty well, thanks! How are you?"
Although I calibrate the colloquialness of my response to the question I was asked.
Q: How are you doing?
A: (See above)
Q: How you doin'?
A: Good! How are you?
Q: How you doin'?
A: (Profoundly ignore speaker. Anyone worth being interested in has a better pickup line than that.)
Just dandy and you?
"Lite trött och sliten men annars bra."
Lately, I have been mostly saying nothing, but busting a few slut drops
Depends on how I feel.
I don't even answer the question. I go straight to "thanks, how are you?"
If I have a cold I'll use the opportunity to warn them to keep a distance. Unless I have a great disdain for them, in which case I give them a big hug and walk away with a smile as explosions erupt behind me.
I voted for good. I'm also impressed that you avoided decency by suffixing two thirds the replies with, "...and yourself?"
I get great pleasure in not reciprocating the curiosity.
Why do you assume people are asking whether or not you're evil?
Don't they say "how are you going?" where you're from? What's that about?
My answer is probably going to be "terrible" even more often now.
