The other day, my beautiful, pregnant wife and I were talking about the turtle we saved the other day.

She said, “if the turtle doesn’t eat, it could have died.”

I corrected her, right there in the car.

I did it, not because I’m a bad husband, but because I’m a good teacher.

I made a quick 2 minute video about my explanation of difference between:
it could die and it could have died.

It’s a common mistake, so I hope the video helps.

Here’s the video:
