When something “happens” , and everything does “happen” it signifies that we have very little control over how things play out.
“It just happened.”
“This is what really happened”.
“What happened to you?”
“Is this really happening?”
“As it happens I’ve been drinking.”
…Not what we want but part of the record nonetheless.
I also like when people get taken out . It’s like they’re just pawns in a giant game of Parchezee. They should say that more on the news, " As it happens Joe Shmoe was taken out in an incident involving gunplay.
