Sweet crustacean dreams

“Have you ever eaten foie gras on a bed of lobster eggs?”

No. Nor seated at the dining room table, either.

(Have the butler leave the foie gras on the nightstand, and I’ll get to it after my nap.)

A simple preposition like on can create so many problems.

A preposition has the simple task of connecting to a noun. In this case, on connects to bed.

The problem here is, you can’t tell which word on is connecting from:

  • you?
  • eaten?
  • foie gras?

Can you fix it?

And can you help me up off this bed of lobster eggs?
