If you think about it, anyone who usually has good news to share can't wait to share it.
Depending on the circumstances, if you have to ask if there is "Good News" there may be a good chance that there isn't.
I came out of my doctor's office the other day, and got that question from someone I was with. I'll let you guess if there was good news, or not.
Not sure if you know which circumstances warrant the question, and which do not? Afraid of saying the wrong thing, or having things be awkward? Let the person who is the bearer of the news volunteer whatever it is that s/he wants to share.
Just my couple of cents. Take 'em or leave 'em.
