    "I am a bold boy." is correct?

    Hi,

    1: "I am a bold boy." is correct?

    2: "I am going to my home." is correct?

    3: Why don't we use "to" before "home" like I am going home?

    Many thanks

    It sounds a bit gay. What are you trying to say?

    2: "I am going to my home." is correct?
    No, "I'm going home".

    3: Why don't we use "to" before "home" like I am going home?
    We just don't. It's an exception.

    Many thanks

    I have deleted the original poster's incredibly ungracious response as well as the ones responding to it.

    There has been enough incivility in this forum lately without adding to it (this directed to the original poster, not to those who justifiably responded to the offending post).
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    That's your privilege, Barb.

    It does seem a pity to me, though, that only those of us who read it know that answering the OP's future posts may attract a rude response. I shall certainly not 'waste my time' (his words) on his questions.
