If you haven’t followed The Grammar Belle, do it. She’s great and feels well, today.

The Grammar Belle

Hey, y’all!

I was recently asked by a reader to clarify how to respond when someone asks, “How are you feeling?” I was happy to oblige—y’all know how much I love it when you ask questions! And I’d like to thank her publicly for the fuel for today’s post. (Thanks, sweet reader!)

So what’s the answer, TGB? And why?

My friends, I’d like to quote the grammatically correct Godfather of Soul for this one: “I feel good.”

When someone asks you how you’re feeling, 99.9999% of the time they’re not asking about your sense of touch or how well your hands work. They’re asking you to describe your state of being. To tell them a little something about yourself. To describe yourself.

When you’re describing a noun (e.g., Brandy) or a pronoun (e.g., I), you use an adjective! That’s why I feel good or happy or frustrated.
