How are you doing?

Good? Well?

I used to say “fine,” but pessimists pretending to be optimists tried to psychoanalyze me. So now I say “good,” but people correct me with “WELL.” Yet… I’m not ready to say well. As a native of the south without much of the accent I need something to allow other natives to identify me as one of them.
