When some one asks you how you are doing tell them
Finer than frogs hair.
Then when they say I didn't know that frogs had hair you tell them oh yes they do. It's just hard to see cause it's so fine.

Or
When someone asks you how your doing,
Tell them I have to sit on my hands to keep from clapping!!

Right from the horse's mouth. (Meaning to go directly to the source for the best answer)

The follow up saying to that saying is,....

It's always best to get the answer from the horse's mouth. However, you have to be smart enough to figure out which end of the horse your talking with.
