The holidays bring parties and gatherings. How do you deal with the " How are you doing?" Followed by "well, you look great..." Sometimes I respond with "Am I supposed to look bad?" It either breaks the ice or ends the conversation before it starts.

How are you doing is usually a rhetorical question. Nobody really wants to hear the real answer to the question.

Them, "How are you feeling?"

Me, "Great, I have been.........."

Them cuts off conversation "So I saw..............."

Most of the time I just respond with the expected "good" reply. If people really want to know the will follow up with a no, how are you really doing.

I'm enjoying the book. It hits home sometimes and I find myself crying. Not  sad but emotional.

I read them both, I think I enjoyed the first book more. Order of reading these only matter because he builds on what has happened since and things he talked about in the first one. I think reading the first one my add that "Ahh" effect to the why he mentioned things he did in his second book.

 

Hope this make as munch sense typed out as it did in my head when I wrote. Feeling tired and might be typing gibberish.

Blessings

That is a good one LADy.  Back about 8 years ago we used to brainstorm parkinson slogans to put onto t shirts.  Fun it was!  that was about ten years ago.
