Munuhhhhhhhh ... a.k.a. "Morning"
When I go for my walk in the morning, I say good morning to everyone I pass. No, I say "Morning" ... which, as a friend and I were discussing recently, is different from saying specifically "GOOD morning." Just saying "Morning" could mean good, bad, indifferent morning. Fill in the blank morning? "__________ Morning." But generally when I have heard people saying good morning here, most tend to say "Morning." I find older people tend to say "Good morning!" Especially older women who say it in a sing-song voice as though you are a sweet little child: "Good moorrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrning, darling/baby/babes!"
So this morning on my walk, as I said "Morning" to people who passed by, I noted the following responses from them:
* "Morning!" (cheerful response accompanied by smile)
* Munuhhhhhh (reluctant, mumbled response with head tucked down and eyes averted)
* Mmmmm (hurried, absent-minded response)
* ________ (no response at all even when I repeat myself)
* People who smile and say "Morning" before I get a chance to.
