Marriage 401, Lecture 636: What the meaning of "is" is
Early in the evening.
SH: I hope you'll stay up until 11.
11:00 is about an hour earlier than he likes to go to bed and about three hours later than I like to go to bed. Compromise.
Me: I thought you were coming to bed.
Me: Because you said you hoped I would stay up until 11.
Me: That was an implied promise that you would be in bed at 11.
SH: No it wasn't. It wasn't a promise. It was just a vague implication.
