It Appears To Be True

     The saying circulating on social media is the real deal: In Norway, one way to respond to "How's it going?" is to say you're "Up and not crying."

     It may be a low bar, but it's a worthwhile state.  Especially at this time of the year, with the shorter days and stressful holidays, being awake, on my feet and not weeping is about as good as it gets.

Weird. I lived in Norway for 3 years, and I never heard that one.

On the contrary, Norwegians were puzzled by the American tradition of asking how you are while not caring to listen to the answer.
