Nothing and Fine.
the 2 totally pointless questions:
1."What are you thinking about?"
Do you really expect someone to tell you his thoughts just because you asked him? The only answer is "Nothing." I can't find another possible answer.Just imagine if we gave a true answer like "that I'm sick of you."or "that I'm in love with you." it would be really funny to see people's reactions.Everyone expects you to say "nothing." and that's what you do to avoid further questions.Simple as that.
2. "How are you?"
We hear that question about 10 times a day and we also ask about 10 people a day how they are.Truth is no one gives a fuck how you are,the only thing they want to hear is "Fine." so they can tell you what they wanted to tell you from the start.Even if i'm not fine I will not tell it just because you asked me.It sounds crazy but that's how it is.The only reason we ask this question is to give the illusion that we care and when we really care no one understands it because it is such a usual question.And again by "Fine." we avoid even more questions like "what happened?","when?", "why?" and of course after all these questions the most stupid phrase "everything is going to be ok.". I mean why is everything going to be ok, just because you say so?We all know that life is not an american teen movie with a happy end and blonde cheerleaders jumpin' around.And what's the point to trust our problems when we can't help each other? Only we,are responsible for our mood and you know what they say "every coin has two sides".
