It’s not enough to say that I’m ardently in love with this video, JumpTrumpRumpBump. If you like excellent animation, a sweet/intriguing story and jazz, this video is worth the watch. (Yes, it’s long. Yes, it’s worth it.)

{Response} Being Busy is Not That Important on

How do you typically answer the question, “How are you?” Think about it.

  • “Good.” (Poor grammar!)

  • “Busy.” (As the author of this post argues, this response is worthless.)

I’ve always found the question “How are you?” to be perplexing. Though I still do ask that question (and when I ask it, I do mean it), I try to ask other more pointed questions, like “How is your day going?” or “What cool thing has happened to you today?” Do you think this matters? Do you think this part of your speech carries significance?
