    I dont know. I would never say it. I would say, "I have a test tomorrow."
    I think it comes down to what form the test takes. If I heard someone say I am having a test tomorrow I would take it to mean that someone is doing something to you, such as a doctor, rather than you taking an exam.

    Sometime early this year I was looking for a particular old post. Then I found threads which I seemed to be seeing for the first time--and yet I saw my replies in them! Some of my comments appeared a bit thoughtless they made me say, "Gee, did I really say that? Duh!"

    There are many old threads which are quite engaging and highly informative. I wouldn't mind seeing them revived.

    Well, I don't remember the posts made after my own post. It is quite possible I have forgotten them. Sometimes, on seeing my post, I have a reaction similar to yours, Marie.

    I was so young and stupid. Some shudder-worthy posts by me I'm sure. Now I'm old and jaded. lol

    I still have that hat and those swim shorts from my profile pic though. Not the Pineapple.
