Honest To Blog: A Journal To Learn From

Every day somebody inevitably asks "How are you?" and I'm conditioned to answer "Fine" regardless of how I'm truly feeling. In most cases the question is a formality, so what does it matter whether I tell the asker the truth? I documented my answers to the question over a few days and collected them below. My responses weren't meant to be humorous. Only referential for when I'm eighty and I need to remind myself why people thought I was annoying.

 
How are you today?
I ate too much at lunch.
That's good.
Hello. How are you?
I'm not sure. I think this t-shirt is too small on me.
Okay.
Like, too short.
I see what you mean.
Hi. How are you?
Kind of tired. You?
Not bad.
How are you today?
I peeled the skin back on my index finger and it really hurts.
That sounds painful.
How are you?
I'm stressed about not having enough time to do some junk.
Mm Hm.
Hello. How are you?
I'm fine. Just thinking about how sharks can grow up to twenty feet in length.
Is that true?
How are you today?
Howard who who hey?
I said how are you today.
Hello. How are you doing?
I'm good, but you should be careful when you ask that question. I might just tell you about the bad gas I had last night.
