    Please help me...
    Should I say

    Today is a beatiful day or today it is a beautiful day?


    A person is having a shower and someone knocks at the door; two other people are in and the person in the bathroom invites them to open the door; what would this person say?

    Who goes and opens the door? or

    Who will open the door?

    Who is going to open the door?

    Thanks Ripley

    Hello Ripley

    1. Today is a beautiful day.
    2. Today it is a beautiful day.

    Both are fine. Perhaps #1 has more of a sense of "today-ness".

    In your shower scenario, these are some possibilities:

    3. Could someone open the door, please?
    4. Who is going to open the door? [This might seem a little impatient.]
    5. Will someone open the door? [This might seem a little brusque.]

    Other members may have other suggestions.

    (Personally, I don't like people to enter the house while I'm having a shower, mainly because the lock on the bathroom door is broken. So I probably wouldn't say anything.)
