    Question while...

    while I was reading, you were cooking.

    I found that someone may rewrite the clause just like:
    while I read, you cooked.

    Is it all right if both actions are parallel?

    By the way, I do not understand this sentence.
    "I happen to think he's right."
    Could you give me a scenario about it.?
    Thanks so much

    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****

    Good morning, Student X.

    MARTHA: Tom is so crazy!

    MONA: Why do you say that?

    MARTHA: Because he said that Betty is a beautiful girl. Everyone knows that she isn't.

    MONA: Oh, yeah? Well, I happen to think he's right!

    MARTHA: You're joking.

    MONA: No, I'm not. In my opinion, Betty IS beautiful -- just as Tom said.

    MARTHA: I can't believe that you're saying that.

    MONA: Well, believe it!
