Picture scenario 1: You are working in a warehouse and you slip on grease that was on the floor. You lose your balance, fall and land awkwardly on your right side. A co-worker saw you fall and comes over laughing at your cartoonish collapse.
He asks "Are you ok?"
What is your response?
Most people would answer "Yeah, I'm okay," even if they are not.
