Fine Is Not Ok

"How are you?"
"Good, yourself?"
"Fine I guess."
"Define fine."
"Well...fine is ok."
"Ok? So you're ok?"
"Not exactly."
"But you said you were fine."
"I am fine."
"But you're not ok?"
"You said fine is ok, therefore you're ok."
"No. Not at all."
"If A equals B and B equals C then A equals C. Its basic logic."
"I don't like math."
"This isn't math, its logic."
"Its the same thing."
"Not really. There's not numbers."
"Same thing."
"Last I checked A, B, and C are part of the alphabet. That means they're letters. 1, 2, and 3 are numbers."
"Can we not talk about math?"
"Of course. Why aren't you ok?"
"Because I'm fine."
"What does that mean?"
"It means I'm not ok."
"So what's bothering you?"
"Nothing is bothering me!"
"If you're not ok, something has to be causing it."
"Nope, I'm just fine."
"It's not the same thing!"
"You said 'ok.' That's not what I am."
"I got that. I wasn't saying it like..."
"Please. Just stop trying to explain yourself."
"Oh. My. God. Nevermind."
"Alright...so why are you just fine?"
"Can we please stop talking about this?"
"Of course. So what's new?"
"I see...well, hows life?"
"Fine. Just fine."
"Ok then."
"I said I'm not ok."
"I know, we went over this."
"What's wrong now?"
"Nothing. I'm fine."
"Fine then."
"Excuse me?"
"I said 'fine.' Everything is fine."
"Umm clearly not! What's wrong with you?"
"Wow, way to be all defensive."
"I give up. Have a good day."
"I can't, I'm not ok."
"Have a fine day then."
"Message received."
