Not bad at all, thanks.
Can’t complain.
Pretty good, thanks.

Yesterday I went to the supermarket.
I picked out a few things, but I couldn’t find the bread.
I asked one of the people there where the bread was.
He told me it was on aisle number 9.
He asked if I wanted him to show me.
I said that was not necessary.
I got the bread by myself and went to the checkout counter.
The clerk asked how I was doing.
I said that I couldn’t complain.
