I like your response. It's polite and confident.

Funny thing ... As I get older, I am beginning to wonder about the people who are so busy focusing on my 'inventory' --- what inventory of their own are they avoiding?!
My answers really do vary depending on who is asking and how well I know them, etc., etc. and how they ask.

You're right - have to wonder about people who focus so much on what others are doing. I have enough to worry about in my own life without snooping into other people's!
