I was just thinking that I should text a couple of people I hadn't seen for a while.
Every time I see one of them, I say, 'Hi, how you doing?' - and she tells me. Now I know I'm her friend and I want to be supportive but it would be wonderful if just once she replied by saying, 'Fine.'
But then again in all the time I've known her I've never had better than an 'Mm, so so.'
