What am I missing here?
"This is a great set of tires to go to Alaska. --clip-- The only negative I
can see is that they are not that great in the snow."
Now, I've only been to Alaska once, but- somehow those two phrases don't
seem to go together like peanut butter and chocolate.
"I might give you a discount if you promise to go to Alaska next summer."
What if I actually go? What if I promise but don't go? What if I promise to
go to Alaska but actually go to, say, Whitehorse? Why does it have to be
Whaddya mean 'might'? I could make the promise and still not get the
discount? What's the deal-breaker there? What's the fetish to get these
tires into Alaska? Why not take 'em yourself?
Somebody help me, I'm confused!
