Isn't eating while swimming kind of awkward?

"We" could very well be other people who are not "you."

Are there separate words for two types of clusivity? I wonder if there is a distinction in norsk?

There is no disctiontion, I was just hoping that one day there would be :) That would make the sentence less ambiguous. However, context (as usual) would let you know what is meant.

Aah, that's good to hear, coming from a language that have distinct words for clusivity grants me relief.

Don't eat while you swim. It makes your food all soggy and it makes the pool dirty.

This can mean both eating while swimming and eating while other people are swimming ("we")??
