'Allt fínt' would have been fine. :P

But it's rude not to ask the other person how they are! Evil or Very Mad

So... you say " En þú? "

En þú is more like "but you?" than "and you?"

En is a mix between 'and' and 'but'. So I use it because it's a change of subject. We're longer talking about me... it's about you.
So it's a 'but'.

Ok... "allt góðt, karl!" Odinn
