No dictionary has ever been able to define the difference between
"complete" and "finished." However, in a linguistic conference,
held in London England, and attended by some of the best linguists
in the world, Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clever winner.
His final challenge was this. Some say there is no difference between
"complete" and "finished." Please explain the difference in a way
that is easy to understand. His response was:
When you marry the right woman, you are "complete."
If you marry the wrong woman, you are "finished."
And, when the right woman catches you with the wrong woman,
you are "completely finished."
His answer was received with a standing ovation
lasting over five minutes and it entitled him to receive
an invitation to dine with Queen, who decided to call him after the contest.
He also won a trip to travel around the world in style
and a case of 25 year old Eldorado rum for his answer.
