How are you

How to reply to one of the most asked question ever How Are You

Previously, there was a saying that a boring person is one who, in response to the question: “How are you,” really tells others how he’s doing, moreover, very thoroughly. Therefore, many tried to answer this question in a monosyllabic and uninteresting way, not being afraid to pass for a person without a creative streak. Saying “Excellent” or “Good” every time is too common. In a cohort of witty people, you definitely cannot answer in such typical ways. After all, even a simple question like “how are you?” can be answered with creativity. And here is how

A great way to answer the question “How are you?” is with a slight quirk. This is especially effective in a negative scenario, since you are displaying the strength of your character and uplifting others.

  • At minding my business? Better than most people.
  • Like you, but better.
  • How dare you!
  • So… I haven’t had my morning coffee… and haven’t hurt anyone yet, so I’d say “pretty good”
  • How am I… what?
  • (ahem… looks like you weren’t paying attention)
  • Physically? Mentally? Spiritually? Socioeconomically? Financially? I’m not sure how to answer that?!

  • I could really use a big, warm hug right now.
  • Thank you for asking. You just made my day.

  • Come find out (oooOOo is this an invitation?)

  • Just pitched a new client. How about you?
  • Good actually. Finally watched season 2 of Friends.
  • I am thrilled, after a ride at Six Flags.
  • I’m doing good. How are you? (remember, always be polite)
