But verbs is never simple when you're drank.


I mean drink.

From: "McCarter, Kim" <kmccarte -at- harris -dot- com>
What you are dealing with here is a simple matter of verb tense and the
difference between past tense and past perfect tense.

Past tense in the "drink, drank, drunk" and "eat, ate, eaten" scheme of things
is the middle verb and is used when it is the sole verb following a subject.
The last verb in each series is the past perfect case and is used whenever you
have a helping verb (have, were, etc) along with the actual verb.
