Life can be entirely overwhelming at times. I read recently that being overwhelmed and underwhelmed both derive from being whelmed, which, unfortunately, also means being overwhelmed. But, (a few) people have started using whelmed to mean neither over or under but rather in a steady state.

Q: How are you?
A: Whelmed.

Heh, I am definitely going to use that.

"How was your meal, Sir?"

"Whelming."

The possibilities are endless...

Hope you tame that dog again soon, Tjm, we're all rootin' for you.

Thanks guys.  I've taken the day to ride it out.  Still a little flaky but nothing like this morning.

As for the 'whelmed' debate, I'll refer you to "10 Things I Hate About You."

"I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?"

"I think you can in Europe."
