Weekend Quickie: Don't Answer It

<em>What if you let yourself</em> <em>not </em>answer the question?</em> Sometimes I don't want to answer the question.

Simple ones, like: "What's new?"

Or the deeper button-pushing ones I've had over the years:

"Are you still unemployed?"

"Are you seeing anyone?"

"How are your finances?"

And then it finally hit me. I don't have to answer every question I get asked.

Imagine responding to someone's uninviting question with a big warm smile and saying, "I don't feel like answering that right now. May I have another?"
