"How are you?"

I suppose Americans would ask "Howz it doin'?'' or "Wazzup?"

"How's business?"

I love these - there is no answer to them that can be true. But it is in the pretence that the answer CAN be true that it all gets interesting!

The social narrative.

Thanks Dale - it's topical for humans at this time!
