No Deid Yet

Traditional response of the auld heid to the salutary greeting “How are ye?”- “No deid yet.” This response sums up in just three words the indominatibility of the human spirit while simultaneously giving a glimpse of the depths of terrible suffering experienced by the auld heid in the normal everyday course of his long existence. An alternative to no deid yet, if the auld heid is being playfully loquacious would be “Hingin on”, or “Just hingin on an nae mair”.
