Let us imagine a short narrative:
A close friend and I met at our favorite café last week. We didn’t have our usual orders. Instead, we tried everything new on the menu. Later on, we realized we shouldn’t have taken the unknown road . . .
My friend was wearing a beautiful dress. It wasn’t purple – the color in which I have seen her most of the time. I assumed she wanted to try something different. Just like her choice of her travel destination this year. In utter excitement, she told me what she planned to do once in Europe: “I am not flying to Italy. That isn’t the way I want to experience my stops.
[. . .]”
Now, imagine the following negative sentences under a positive light – by rewriting them without a negation:
We didn’t have our usual orders.
[. . .] we shouldn’t have taken the wild road.
It wasn’t purple.
I am not flying to Italy.
That isn’t the way I want to experience my stops.
Enjoy the practice!
