Also, a pet peeve and some lyrics

Pet peeve:

Person A: How ya doin'?
Person B: OK.
Person A: Just OK?

What exactly should I read into that last question? Do you actually want to have a conversation about the complexities and delicate mood balances that leave me feeling OK? Because I could get into it, and we'll be here all day. Or do you just want to rub it in that I'm not deliriously happy? Or are you a glass is half-empty kind of person? I'm OK! That should suffice!

This song has been stuck in my head for about a week. Why?
a) the masterstroke lyric "take a glance at the fancy ants"
b) it is utterly representative of my mood lately

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the tree
To make some honey just for me
When you look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at the fancy ants
Then maybe try a few

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Now when you pick a pawpaw
Or a prickly pear
And you prick a raw paw
Next time beware
Don't pick the prickly pear by the paw
When you pick a pear
Try to use the claw
But you don't need to use the claw
When you pick a pear of the big pawpaw
Have I given you a clue ?

The bare necessities of life will come to you
They'll come to you!

So just try and relax, yeah cool it
Fall apart in my backyard
'Cause let me tell you something little britches
If you act like that bee acts, uh uh
You're working too hard

And don't spend your time lookin' around
For something you want that can't be found
When you find out you can live without it
And go along not thinkin' about it
I'll tell you something true

The bare necessities of life will come to you

The chiro this morning did the neck thing to me for the first time. It happened so fast and was loud and scary. I kind of don't want him to do that again even though I think it made me feel better.

Excellent answer.
Or just make something up outta left field:
"I'm regretting that flight through the Van Allen Belt..."
"The commute from Mars is longer than what I expected."

I've also answered the "Just OK?" question with "Right now, I'm pretty thrilled to be 'Just OK'."
