Camp 1: People who give you a good amount of detail
Camp 2: People who answer with one word: "fine"
Camp 2 people seem like geodes to me: I want to know what's really going on inside. Once a reporter, always a reporter, I suppose.
So what does that mean, exactly, "fine?"
I heard one person call the word an acronym for the following: Feelings Inside Not Expressed
And just today, my friend Amy said she has a pal who likes to say: "I'm fine...but I'll be alright."
I'm going with online Webs definition #3: delicate, subtle, or sensitive in quality, perception, or discrimmination.
I'd sure like to be that kind of fine person--and depart Camp 1.
