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.
