    Yes. Had you any reason to think we couldn't?

    I have been saving hard for months. By this time next week I'll finally have a car of my own.

    Re: future possession

    I'm sorry, but, is that a correction or a funny comment about how we don't need to address each other this way here? :)
    I'm so confused.

    If it is a witty comment, I think I've started taking you people a bit too seriously. *chuckles*

    Re: future possession

    It's not a funny comment about how we address each other here. It's a simple statement of fact - addressing each other on this forum as "Sir" or "Madam" or any form of "Respected Teacher" etc is unnecessary and discouraged. We refer to each other by our usernames if we need to actually address each other at all.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
