    Please look at this sentence:

    Please help me with this one:

    'Last night was the best meal I've ever had.'

    Do native speakers say something like this or regard this one as a logically acceptable sentence?

    It was the best meal I've ever had last night.----
    I would say like this.

    If you say that, someone may want to know how the night was prepared.

    I would say, "Last night I had my best meal ever."

    Could you elaborate why someone may want to know how the night was prepared in response to ''Last night was the best meal I've ever had.'?

    Thank you.

    Thank you.
    Because you said that "last night" was "the best meal." It sounded like you chewed, swallowed and digested the night.
