“It makes me feel tired just think about it.” Is this sentence okay? I mean grammatically correct? Do people say that?
No, I would say “it makes me tired just to think about it” would be more suitable.
Or “It makes me tired just thinking about it.”
Thanks a lot!
One of my friends made a sentence like this: “I never think but feel tired. I never think without feeling tired.” Do they make sense?
The only problem is that the sentence is missing one word. “It makes me feel tired just TO think about it” is a perfectly acceptable sentence in my part of the English-speaking world. I have likely said it myself numerous times.
“I never think but feel tired. I never think without feeling tired.” Sentence 2 is ok. I don’t think I understand sentence 1.
Thanks a lot. But what does this sentence “I never think without feeling tired” actually mean?
It seems to mean that every time I think it makes me feel tired. But it’s not totally clear. A time adverb might help. Like “I never eat without washing my hands first” or “I never eat without washing the dishes afterwards.”
I keep thinking about that SImpsons episode with the Malibu Stacy that says, “Math makes my head hurt.”
I would say “I feel tired just thinking about it” or “It makes me feel tired just thinking about it” – by which I would mean “it sounds so hard that even the thought of doing it exhausts me”. I’m a native speaker and this is definitely something I’ve said before.
Yes, “It makes me tired just thinking about it” is the most common one.
