    Default Imagination

    Someone tells something that happened at his home last night but nobody believes him. Then, he/she replies:



    1.- Itīs not IN MY IMAGINATION!
    2.- Itīs not MY IMAGINATION!

    Iīve always heard "in my imagination", but I was thinking
    of another possibility. I really hesitate if itīs right. I
    am talking about the second sentence. "Imagination
    without in". Are both of them correct? Do they mean
    the same thing?

    Thanks a million!

    In the example you gave, the proper response would either be "It's not my imagination!" or perhaps "I know I didn't just imagine it!"
