I don't understand this sentence clearly. Why we don't use "goes"? I think we can use it.
Please give me an explanation
Thanks.( correct me, if I write wrong)

The person is saying that every-time they drink their tea, something happens, not something goes, or does.

eg. Every-time they drink their tea , the phone rings. ( Something happens. )

Hi,
I could not get the conversation between the patient and doctor,Because patient is asking the reason for his problem(pain in his right eye),but doctor is talking about the spoon and cup patient uses.Kindly clarify my doubt.

'drink' would have to be in the past tense if you were to use the past tense 'happened':
It happened every time I drunk a cup of tea.

Hello, Sir.
One of my friend said to me, "It just happened to be lucky"
Is it correct to say it in this way ?
And what does "it happened" means in this sentence. ?
Thanks
