TRY … It’s not an action word!
The first time I heard about “Try” was in church. One Sunday we had a guest speaker who was greeting parishioners as they left the sanctuary, asking whether they’d be back in a couple of hours for a workshop she was offering that afternoon.
One woman said, “I’ll try.”
In her heavy South Louisiana drawl, our guest speaker admonished, “Don’t lie to me, honey. There is no TRY. You’ll either be here or you won’t.”
I got it. And, I came back for the workshop!
