Last time


Senior Member

I was watching an Instagram story of a British influencer.

Her friend was wiping something off her hair.
She said: Last time I was doing that, I was holding back her hair because she was puking.

The other one said: yeah she held my hair back when I was puking out.

Now I wonder whether it could be rephrased as:

Last time I did that, was when I held back your hair while you piled.

2. last time I did that i was holding back your hair when you puked. (Somehow this doesn’t sound too good.)

3. Last time i did that i was holding back your hair because you were puking.

I’d chose 1 or 3

    (2) doesn't sound any more distasteful than (1) or (3) do, Fbohn. (3) seems a little more likely to me than the other two possibilities do.

    What is the substance of your question? Your thread title is "last time", and that is used correctly in all three versions (except that you want a comma after "that" in 2 and 3 but not in 1).

    I think I like "while" (after "hair") better than "when", and also better than "because".
    I like "Last time was when I" and "Last time I did that, I was" equally.
