I’m Good vs. I’m Well
Scenario: You pass a friend in the grocery store. Your friend asks you, “How are you doing?” You pause, wondering whether it’s proper to use the word good or the word well. You throw out well, even though you want to say good, because you’ve heard rumblings that well is the grammatically correct choice.
Yes, well is often the right choice; however, good can be a solid option, too. Here, University of Michigan Professor Anne Curzan explains why you should not be scolded for choosing good.
