    Blacknomi, thanks a million for that. Unfortunately, typos do creep in, no matter how careful I try to be. Let me know if you spot any others.

    I'll meet you another day. (unspecific day in the future)
    I'll meet you the other day.

    Are both acceptable?

    Tdol, what do you mean? I don't get it.

    I saw him the other day.
    I saw him another day. ( Why is this wrong?)
    I'll meet you the other day.
    I'll meet you another day.


    Confused. :?
