I actually saw an episode of it recently.

The person after me has eaten ice cream for breakfast at least once in their life.

Yes, because I eat ice cream every time and in every season whenever I have the opportunity. I just love ice cream and for me it’s not necessary any logical decision or right timing to have one.

The person after me uses to have a continental breakfast.

Just in case you're interested, I think I personally would say that movie, but I'm pretty sure lots of native speakers disagree with me on that. :D


Of course, I'm interested in this. :flowers:

Thanks! :D

...You mean you don't want to be stuck doing the laundry? "I didn't want to be stuck in the laundry" sounds to me like you're talking about a time when you were doing the laundry and you had to do something to avoid falling into a laundromat or a basket of clothes. :lol:


Well, doing the laundry can be so boring that it puts me to sleep sometimes :ohwell:

Now I'm just imagining you doing the laundry and going "uuuuugh this is so booooriiiing" and then falling into the laundry basket and going "ugh not this again :roll: Get me out of here!"

The person after me has never seen the rain.

I don't think anyone ever answered this question, so I will. ;) Yes, of course, I've seen the rain! :P
Antea wrote:Yes, because I eat ice cream every time and in every season whenever I have the opportunity.

I'd say when instead of whenever here since the ever in whenever is redundant here (a little unnecessarily repetitive IMO: ?every time and in every season whenever), but I'm not sure whether other native speakers would agree that that's wrong per se. ;)
I just love ice cream and for me it’s not necessary any no logical decision or right timing is necessary to have one.

I think usually native speakers just say "I just love ice cream and I don't need an excuse to have one." :P We also usually say "good timing" rather than "right timing" AFAICT.
The person after me uses to have often/usually has a continental breakfast.

Not sure whether you mean they often (Catalan (ca) sovint) or usually (Catalan (ca) normalment) have a continental breakfast

I would say a bowl of yoghurt or a container of yoghurt or something (and I never know how to spell "yoghurt" :lol:). Maybe this is an American English vs. British English difference (some British people at least do seem to say a yoghurt).

Believe it or not...New Orleans-style gumbo! I love using it as salad dressing. :lol:

The person after me has difficulty coming up with sentences to use in "the person after me" games.

Zero. I can't even distinguish between pilates and crossfit.

No, this is a fairly normal thing for me. Using an uncountable noun countably implies a unit of it, without specifying what kind of unit. I think I mainly use it when ordering food. You could say "I'll have a water, please," to mean one unit of water, which could be a bottle or a cup or whatever the establishment might use.

Don't be silly. I already know how to swim.

The person after me still has decorations up from the last party they threw.

No, not really. I only remember having a book with fairy tales from around the world as a child, which mentioned there's a lot of suffering and death in Polynesian folklore.

"Conclude a deal" is a valid phrase, but it makes it sound like negotiations are ongoing, and all the person wants is to finish them.
