I am for you

can’t is the present tense of didn’t

if you blinked, you can't have not blinked

Yep, can’t means didn’t but in the present tense.

Why didn’t I do X? Because, given all the factors of the situation, I couldn’t do X. Though I might well have done it and/or do it at another point in time, in another (possibly even very similar) situation…
