How are you?

I am good. That’s right, I am good, not well. I am doing well. I feel well. But if you’re asking how I am, I can now confidently say, I am good. Thank godess.

It’s a grammar question that’s been bugging me for a while as I’ve listened to extremely literate, articulate friends answer, “I am well.” It always rubbed me just slightly wrong somehow, but my grammar ins-and-outs are pretty rusty. Thanks to the trusty internet tubes and Grammar Girl I found a great explanation about why I am good.

  1. Excellent! I’m SO glad she adressed the whole I feel badly’ phenomenon, too!! Now if she can get people to stop saying, “You did good” I can sleep more easily. 🙂
