Hello :)

I'd like to know how to express this.
When someone is said " What's wrong with you? You look pale. " , this following answer make sense?

Nothing special. It's my usual color.

Would you give me some better expression?
Thank you.

Rather than 'nothing special' as an answer to What's wrong with you?, 'nothing in particular' would be a more appropriate answer.

'Nothing special' would more naturally be said as answer to e.g.What are you doing tonight?
