Student or Learner
Hello, I have a very important question for you. Which is the only situation in the world when we use "I am having a dog"? My teacher asked me to answer this, so I must to. Please, I need help.
P.S.: It's about stative verbs.
I really can't imagine any situation where I could use that phrase. Always when I see "I'm knowing", I'm having" I'm going crazy, because I don't know how use them. Sure, we can use them as a gerund, but what about present continuous? "I'm having a key" instead of "I have a key" It sounds absolutely strange for me. (I know the rule about present continuous)
Can somebody think of a couple of situation where I can say: "I'm having a dog". I'll be grateful.
You can write them in a private message or I can create a new thread.
