03/14/2005: My mixed marriage
I had no idea I was in a mixed marriage, until I saw this post from John Holbo.
Last night's post got everyone opinionated up. Let's try again. There are two kinds of people. People who think the phrase is "you've got another thing coming." As in the Judas Priest song. And people who think the phrase is "you've got another think coming." As in the Ross McDonald Novel, The Zebra Striped Hearse (p. 41 or so, if I recall.) People seem to divide pretty evenly in my experience. But googlefight gives it to 'thing'. Most of the top hits for 'think' are people denying that 'thing' is right. (I'm really not sure what's going on here, but clearly they support 'think'.)
I'm a 'think' man. Belle is a 'thing' lady.
Like John and Belle, Janet and I differ in our understanding of this phrase. I'm a "thing" man, Janet is a "think" lady.
