Sometimes I get a little weary of always having to explain to well-meaning people how I am feeling.
The other day I decided to be a little cryptic in my reply. A medical person asked me how I was, and I replied, “I am not as good as I was yesterday but definitely better than I will be tomorrow!” The medico responded, “Oh, that’s good” and I nearly brained him.
How often do we ask questions and expect the usual platitudinal answer. How often do we not hear answers to the questions we ask other people? And perhaps I especially need to be careful how I answer people lest someone really believe a facetious answer I may give.
