I always have my cake and eat it, I share too.
hmmm from my understanding, the meaning of 'have' when they say, you cant have your cake and eat it as well, is having the cake as it is. You cant eat the cake unless you cut it and once you cut it, you cant have the cake as it is.<br />
Its like you cant have the coin tossed in air to fall both heads and tails. They are mutually exclusive events. It is gotta be either one of them. I guess thats what they are trying to tell us using the cake example.
Thank you! now can I cut the cake and eat it? lol :)
The concept is that you either have a cake, or you eat it and therefore no longer have a cake, because it has been eaten. The ex<x>pression is basically that you can't have things both ways. ;)
I'll give you my share. I don't eat cake. At a party, I wait until everyone has their slice then I go scrape icing onto a plate. :)
