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
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!
