If you post too soon, with 'I think', most readers will be waiting for confirmation from a teacher.

    Re: At 5 o'clock

    I have split off these posts to a new thread, since they are unrelated to your first question. Please start new threads for new questions.
    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.
