Imagine person A asks person B, how B is doing. B is doing bad and he or she is upset with the question (after all, nobody wants to admit that he or she is screwing his or her life up).
What kind of a phrase can B use in order to tell A that
- he is doing badly,
- he doesn't like to be asked the bad state of his or her affairs and
- he doesn't care about being polite?
In Russian, there is a phrase "My things are as white as soot" (white means good, black - bad). Since the response rhymes with the question, that sentence has a particularly sarcastic tone.
I'm looking for something similar in English.
