Good, Bad, or Healthy

GA: “How are you?”
Friend: “I’m good. And you?”
GA: “I’m well — and good too.”
So goes the Grammar Anarchist’s discourse with people who proclaim their goodness (moral behavior) when I inquire about their health. When I’m good, I’m very very good; and when I’m well, I feel even better. I may even be good and well, which is good-er.
