Americans are used to people asking, "How's it going?" or "How you doin'?" without waiting for or even wanting an answer ... especially in some parts of the country. I've developed a habit of replying in a way that arrests the other person's attention. I often say something like "Ecstatic!" or "Fair to partly cloudy," or something equally inane.
Recently a former student sent me an e-mail with a series of pictures in which people would not want someone to ask how their day is going. Most of these pictures need no explanation, while others cause me to want to hear an explanation!
I'll start off with a cartoon I used to have posted on my old website. It shows an excited prison escapee who will soon start to have a bad day.
Now on to the pictures from the e-mail....
I removed a picture here because, when posting it, I did not realize it was copyrighted. You can see it in this article online. It's a picture of flood waters pouring out the windows of a local mill. Yikes!
Animals can have a bad day too. Here's another picture from my old website, followed by the last two from the e-mail.
Now that I think about it, I'm having a pretty good day after all! Hope you are too.
