Hard to get hired in this economy.

This answer would get you passed over by me and most hirers. Exceptional and creative people get hired in any economy, and you never want to be seen as anything less in an interview.

A better response would be to (truthfully) mention something productive you did while looking. Like caring for an elder, taking classes, volunteer work, etc.

I'm glad you said what you said and got hired anyway. The exceptional and creative individual is one of many nowadays. Glad your HR doesn't live in a bubble.
