I am feeling a littler under the weather

“I am feeling a littler under the weather” some idioms and vocabulary to explain how bad you feel!

These days, when people ask “How are you?” the answer now is usually “I’m good”. In the old days, we used to answer “I’m well”. I am fighting a lonely battle to bring back I’M WELL, as I’M GOOD IS WRONG! Call me pedantic! Please support me in my campaign!

Anyway, here are some useful and colourful answers to that question How are you? so that you can get some sympathy from your friends:

I threw up yesterday all over the carpet (I vomited)
