Thinking Not Inside The Box

| Australia | Learning | August 21, 2014

(It’s exam time, and my best friend and I are comparing study timetables. I notice that next to all of the study breaks on her timetable she’s written either ‘I’ or ‘N’.)

Me: “What do the ‘I’ and ‘N’ mean?”

Friend: “Oh, they stand for ‘inside’ and ‘not inside’.”

Me: “But isn’t ‘not inside’ the same as outside?”

Friend: *looks at me and blinks* “That never occurred to me.”
