“Might as well”

25 Sep

Every day we have to make choices – tea or coffee at breakfast? Blue or pink blouse today? …

However, sometimes we can’t decide what to do, or it doesn’t really matter what we choose. In such a case, we can use the phrase “might as well”.

For example: Your family is talking about going to a restaurant. You suggest a Chinese restaurant. Your husband suggests an Indian restaurant. Your son wants to go to MacDonald’s. You talk and talk, but you can’t agree. Then somebody says: “Well, if we can’t agree, then we MIGHT AS WELL eat at home tonight.”

So, if you have some choices, but none of them looks like the best, then it doesn’t really matter what you do. In such a case, you can say MIGHT AS WELL, and choose an option randomly, or do something completely different.
