    On my way

    Hi guys,

    Please check. We say "I dropped my pen on my way to the office or home". But suppose I have just reached office. Manager asks me for a pen and I dropped it on my way to the office. So can I say "I dropped it somewhere while coming to the office or on my way to here(means office)"?

    Re: On my way

    Yes, but drop the "to" from "to here", so that it reads "on my way here".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Re: On my way

    Sorry I didn't get you. Do you mean I can say "I dropped it somewhere on my way here"?
