What does "one" from "one lasagna for every year old you are" mean? Can you give me some example sentences using "one" like this?
You will notice that earlier in the video, Garfield receives nine lasagnas from his owner. This number represents his age, which is why his owner says that he has cooked "one lasagna for every year old you are." Although the ending of the sentence is slightly awkward, you can use this grammar pattern in similar ways. Ex: For your birthday cake, you should light one candle for every year you've been alive. Ex: One present for each member of the family.
