So, it was around 4:30 this morning that my mind was doing its wandering thing. Augie had decided he needed to go outside to relieve himself and then didn't want anything to do with his crate when he came back in. We settled onto the couch and he went to sleep.
It should scare me when these odd-ball random thoughts pop into my head but I've grown used to them and, most of the time, welcome them.
We use the contraction I was thinking about all the time but I don't believe I've ever seen it in print. Are you ready for the big reveal?
Ex: when's it going to snow? when's Alma going to make a damn apple pie? when's spring going to get here?
I played around with this particular contraction to see if it could be used with past tense questions. Turns out it can!
Ex: when's the last time I weighed 120 pounds? hmmmm, that's the only example I could come up with for past tense.
There are a ton o' contractions; why isn't "when's" one of them?
