There’s a woman I work with whose native language is not American English, and when I pass her in the hall, she invariably says, “Hello, how are you doing?” I answer in my slovenly fashion, “uhh, good, thanks, howah you?”
She always says “I’m doing good”. Not “I’m doin’ good”, but DOING. I’m DOING good.
It struck me the other day, that makes it sound like she’s out there in the world Mother Theresa-ing around saving and helping, and I thought, ‘Am I doing any good?’
But maybe I’ll work on it.
