You Can Have It Both Ways… In future tense… February 12, 2010

Filed under: Randomness — The Ramblings of Amazingness By Jenny J Bean @ 1:56 am

Due in part to my last post, and in part to my accidentally throwing away my roommate’s good pizza doughs when I cleaned out the fridge (long story for another time), we got into a heated debate about whether ‘you can have it both ways’. We couldn’t figure out why we disagreed on this point until we realized that we were defining the phrase differently. ‘Can have’ can be either present tense or future tense. I look at in the future tense, while my roommate looks at it in the present. Yes, in the present, you can’t feasibly tun left and right at the same time. In the future, you can choose to go both left and right at different times, and therefore you can feasibly have it both ways.

I’m going to call this half a blog, because I’m feeling very light headed right now, and I think that’s my cue to stop writing for the night… until tomorrow…
