    Describing my week

    Hi,

    Are the following sentences natural to a native ear?

    1. I was sick the whole last week. It started out as a cold but turned into viral fever and finally turned into sinus.

    2. Something just dropped from your purse and rolled right under my chair.

    3. I consider driving under influence as an insult to my passengers.

    Thanks,

    MG.

    Your sinus is above your nasal area; you cannot suffer sinus but you can suffer from a problem in your sinus.
    Corrections is red; blue is for a fuller explanation if needed.
