Monday Morning

Have you ever gotten to your workplace and said "good morning!" to someone without really thinking about it?

The person so addressed nearly automatically responds with the same greeting and tack-on "how are you?"

To that, nearly everyone responds (without thinking, and usually without listening) with "fine."

We've all done it countless times.

It's a classic (and time-worn) greeting ritual.

Today is going to be different.

The first one who who asks me how I'm doing is going to get
"I'm doing great. Everyday that I'm above ground, it is great."
It's fun to be different. And it's true.
