    When colleagues/ coursemates ask you this tomorrow, whats your answer?

    Personally, this question makes me nervous and slightly depressed.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    I just say "It was alright," lie about watching some TV show, or say "pretty busy, got a lot of work done"

    I don't think anyone really cares about what you say in small talk

    Same old stuff.. "It was good, you?"

    I can't tell them I was spending my whole weekend on TSR so I give them a generic answer.

    "Well! If you really want to know, I napped 5 times between the two days because fibromyalgia is so amazing. But if I'm being completely honest, this time I'm not so sure if it's fibro or pregnancy. My friends and fiance told me it's not too early to find out if I have a bun in the oven but I don't trust early tests. Guess I'll be finding out in a couple of weeks! Abortion or no? What do you think? That's been playing over and over again in my head over the weekend. Also, there's a very big chance I'll be eloping next month but I can't decide whether or not I want to. Maybe you could help me figure out answers to my life's questions this fine Monday morning! :ahee:"

    So this is why I don't have many friends...

    Years of chronic illness trains you to become an expert in ducking/giving disingenuously upbeat answers to such questions :ninja:
