I can say that "I'm going shopping", but can I say "I'm going sleeping?"
I can say "I've never been skiing", but what about "I've never been eating?"
How can you tell which words can be used in the formats mentioned above?
"And I'm telling you and your chef, it's undercooked. I've never been eating a lobster before and had to chase it round the plate with my fork. Please take it back to the kitchen."
Can you use that tense form with eating? As you can infer from my example, on not too many occasions!
