“At least” is a common phrase used by Zambians and it is one of my favorites. It is the opposite of “just okay” which I mentioned in another post means: I am great. When you ask a Zambian how he is doing and he says “at least” it is similar to how we use “I am okay” in the United States. But literally what I think it really means is “I am not great, but at least I am alive”. When I hear “at least” it always brings me back to earth and true reality. I think this will be a phrase I adopt for life.
