How Are You?

"Good question..."

" I'm feeling..."


"Tired/run down/ feeling ill..."

"Feeling good! Followed up by why..."

It would be nice to see you sometime...coffee?  Let me know.  MN, Portland, OR

How Are You?

I always liked Norm from Cheers retort - something like it's a dog eat dog world and I'm wearing milkbone underwear.....

How Are You?

Have you ever had someone presume they know how you are? What was that experience like? What was your response?

How Are You?

My mom and I went to an event once where the speaker said to answer that question with "unbelievable". He gave examples of how it can mean either a positive reply or negative reply, although people usually interpret it positively.  

How was your weekend?  Unbelievable!

How was the visit from the in-laws?  Unbelievable!

How Are You?

The first thing to come to mind is: "Very well, thank you". I know not very witty but what can I say? I take the greeting at face value; a way for people to connect and acknowledge each other.
