Revisiting the conditional
I didn't know the conditional mood/tense can be so confusing.
The confusing thing is basically trying to understand the subtle (to me at least) difference
between a possibility & hypothetical event. Correct me if I am wrong:
1) A possibility is something (in the present) that may or may not have happened.
1a) [present] The marathon runners seemed to be in great pain.
2) A hypothetical event is something that's imaginary, wishful thinking.
2a) If I were Audrey Hepburn, I would use my beauty to date as many handsome men as possible.
As for the difference between the conditional and the future tense, I hope someone can explain that to me. Thanks
