Fine

Darling Daughter,

According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, the adverb "fine" means "all right" or "very well."  Nothing in either definitions suggests the need for an accompanying eye roll or dramatic sigh.

Thank You!

Your Mother

According to Webster's Collegiate Dictionary when you look up FINE..
It says: See Mama Zen!

Hey, I think the dictionary might be a bit out of date...

Just gonna laugh at this one. I've earned it. :)

But I want to also add... "Fine" is NOT a good answer when you ask you husband "How do I look". If he gets an eye roll, he is lucky. If he gets the "glare", watch out! :)

LOL. My mother once remarked that she'd never encountered anyone who could use the word "fine" as a swearword before she meet my husband.

Funny, in my household, the word "fine" has become almost a select adjective that is usually uttered by both parents and the 11 year old prima donna.
