Good! How are you?

So, the other night I posted about my excitement when conversations start with “Hey, my friend…” (especially with a Spanish accent).

Well, I just discovered that I’m not at all sure how I feel about conversations that start in Spanish and end in “my friend”.

You see, I don’t speak Spanish, and I have no idea what he said, but that didn’t stop me from responding with a solid “Good! How are you?”

I’m pretty sure he wasn’t asking me how I was, but my response seemed to work — and I wasn’t thrown out.

So perhaps that’s a solid answer for questions that start in Spanish and end in “my friend”?

“How do you feel about the world ending tomorrow, my friend?”

Good! How are you?

“What are the odds you and I can go home together, my friend?”

Good! How are you?

“Hello. My name is Indigo Montoya, you killed my father. Prepare to die, my friend!”

Good! How are you?

It just works. Sort of.
