What to say when someone says how are you

Clever replies to how are you

What’s a good answer to the question, ”How are you doing?” Of course it depends who asks, but go ahead, tell us what you think is the best comeback.

If you can think of an even better comeback, then let us know!

The five best comebacks to how are you

  1. I’m better on the inside than I look on the outside!
  2. Better than I was a minute ago because you are here.
  3. I’m fine and dandy, sweet as candy!
  4. I’ve slipped into the 7th circle of hell and you?
  5. I’m walking, alive and sober — anything beyond that’s gravy.
