Was in at the chemist's today (Pharmacy, drug store, you work it out.) and fronted to the counter to put in a prescription.
The conversation went something like this:
Sweet thing: How are you today?
Me: Good. How about yourself?
Sweet thing: Not too bad.
Me: (thinks) OK. That means what?
Me: (Asks) OK. If Bad is a 3 and Good is a 10, where are you on that scale?
Sweet thing: Uh...6.
Me: Excellent! That's above the national average!
I go off and do some shopping for dinner tonight and then return to pick up the prescription.
Sweet thing: Hi! How are you?
Me: Good, thank you. Yourself?
Sweet thing: I'm a seven now!
Me: It's been a good morning for all of us then.
