QUESTION: What do you normally answer when somebody asks you
"how are you?".
If you're anything like me, the standard answer usually is something uneventful like "fine, and you?", "okay" or - if you're having a particularly nice day - you might actually say "good".
Do you ever say "FANTASTIC!" or "I AM MOST BLESSED! THANK YOU FOR ASKING!".
I don't. I would be embarrassed. Especially when it's not a friend asking, but just those curtsy exchanges at supermarket, at the school parking lot or at the post office.
