"Nothing much" That's what she said
"Nothing much" That's what he said too.
"Nothing much" a phrase that we all use almost every day.
Even if there's too much to disclose, we often choose to say "Nothing much."
Maybe we're more closed off than we lead others to believe, maybe we're facing too much to share with anyone or maybe just maybe nothing is actually going on.
It's a very 'in general" kind of thing, I think we mostly use it because we don't want to disclose every detail to the person we're having the conversation with. At times I even use this phrase to cut short a conversation, and this particular phrase is the least offensive way to do that.
Some will say that saying "Nothing much" is a dreadful answer but what if, just what if the person really had nothing interesting to share about. For example, my weekends are usually spent at home. After 6 working days, I prefer to stay home and rest, so if anyone asks me "What's Up?" I'll definitely say "Nothing much" even if that person is my bestie.
There are two sides to a coin. And so will be the situation for the person saying "Nothing much". This topic is actually an idea from a friend. Yesterday I was having a chat with a friend and when he asked me "What are you doing?" I said "Nothing much". No, he didn't complain about the answer, rather he said "Hey, good topic." I answered "What?" He said "Yea you can write a post for this answer in your blog." And there you go, I made it into a post. The point is, sometimes even we have to think of why the other person responded this way and not jump to conclusions too fast.
This is quite different from what I usually write about. The way my friend was showing his understanding of my situation is something that had transpired to share this concept with all of you. The ones who care will understand; the ones who don't care will have different opinions. Stay well and stay blessed.
