Two phrases for contemplation:
1. I am going to empty the trash
2. I am going to take out the trash
Now, to me, these have two different meanings. One means that whatever the trash is in is being taken to the dumpster and returned. The other means the container will be deposited in the receptacle with the trash therein. To one of my dearest friends, they are synonymous. What do you think? Any other weird phrases for this action that you all use?
