For some reason, folks using the word good instead of well bothers me at the cellular level... not sure why... just does... :P

The use of less for fewer drives me crazy. I shop at Publix because the express checkouts have signs "20 Items or Fewer".

It's all well and good, but:

You may be a good skier, but you ski well.

You can feel good and you can feel well, but one implies your mental state while the other is describing your health.

And when someone asks you how you are, if you respond with “I am good,” you are telling them what type of person you are. I suggest dropping the ego, and letting them know about your general state of being.
