: : Does anyone know what the phrase "...but sometimes a river" means? Like why would someone conclude a sentence with that? It's more or less driving me crazy trying to get to the bottom of that.

: "Usually I swim in a lake, but sometimes a river." Is that the sort of sentence you mean or is there more to it?

I'm confused, too. What's the complete sentence, and what is it from?
