Hey What Is Happening How was your Day

I have always hated that question. I feel intimidated and ill at ease—paranoid—guilty. I want to say, “Well I saved a young woman from a rapist, a number of rapists, a rapture of rapists. I solved a great problem and now all is well.” I want to say,” My period won’t stop and I’m cramping like a mother ****er.” I can’t say, “Well I walked my dog, Zelda. Conan had to stay home because he misbehaves.” I can’t say, “Later I read a Dean Koontz novel then I took a nap.” I can’t say that. Instead I simper and say small things like, “You know it was cool and all.”
