When being asked : "How do you feel ?", can one both say "I feel so-so" as well as "I'm feeling so-so" ?
But can't I say : "I feel so-so." ? Anything wrong with that ?
One more question : both "I feel so-so" and "I'm feeling so-so" are okay ?
"I feel so-so" is an acceptable phrase, but you are more likely to hear, "I'm feeling so-so" on being asked that question.
The response is usually accompanied by a hand gesture: arm slightly extended outwards with palm flat towards the ground and rotating (like a boat gently rocking left and right).
(1) It is NOT important, but I thought that you would like to know that many (most?) Americans don't use the hyphen.
(2) To many (most?) Americans, it looks strange.
(3) TOM: How are you?/ MONA: So so. (adjective)
(4) SUE: How well does George speak English? / TAMMY: So so. (adverb)
