A-ha, but are you glad you didn't have to be on a course with him, or that you didn't turn into him?
And (sorry, I just can't stop myself now) trust me, you don't want to get into a debate about grammar with our Jennifer, who, along with the redoubtable xiamenese, started this whole thing.
Redoubtable or not — and I would hope not! — I didn't turn into him!
