I said "I am good." She said I should have said, "I am fine."

To me, this is six of one, half a dozen of the other.
What do you think?

Incidentally, why can I not type an apostrophe on this website. Both of the above sentences were uttered with contractions for "I am".

It depends on the context. In casual conversation "I'm good" has some meanings that don't quite match the meaning of "I'm fine".

I can't help you with your apostrophe. It works for me.

What about, "I'm good," as a contraction for, "I'm good to go"?

Now the apostrophe is working.

This is a good example of just what I was talking about. People don't say, "I'm fine to go".

No, but I see no problem in saying, "I'm good," if someone asks me how I am. Fine has alot of other meanings than just in good condition.

She has fine skin.
This line is too fine.
Hi,

I think of 'I'm good' as a feature of American English.
