    As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of life and growing older, I came to realize these profound truths: 1. If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal. 2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat. 3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives...

By "How are you doing?" - the primary "WE'RE DOING WELL" answer here means you are either out of debt or are at least paying down your debt and not taking on any new debt.
