How to write good(well).

I like it, the how are you question is used as more of a greeting than a question by most of us.

People are surprised to hear something other than "fine, well" or "good". My grandfather always answered "no better" or "no worse". I do that on occasion, surprises a lot of people, reminds them they are actually asking a question.
I sometimes say "Could be better, could be worse." or "Fair to middlin'" meaning not bad or maybe a tad better than on an average day. How many people that ask, really care how you're feeling anyway?
