if not impertinent question
"How are you ?"
— Just struggling on.
— Getting closer to the grave
(or bosom of Abraham).
— Same as when you last asked me.
— Feeling nearly as bad as you look.
— Mouldering away.
— Same as ever.
— Better (or worse) than yesterday.
— Just holding together.
(any good answer welcome!)
Suggestions (see commentaries below) include:
— Nohow. (which is more cryptic in English than sehogy is in Hungarian).
— I'm fine, but it's the others...
— Better than anyone I know.
