Today’s sentence of the day was uttered by my aunt, who was talking with my mother and my other aunt about a time when they were looking for a grocery store while traveling:
There was no grocery store to be had.
This one wins just for being a great example of passivized have, and for being related to those fascinating accusative subject constructions in Icelandic:
Þar er enga orkugjafa að hafa
there is no energy.source.acc to have
nema brennisteinsvetnið. (source)
‘There is no energy source to be had there other than hydrogen sulfide.’
And a good time was had by all. :-)
