Topic: me too / us too or we too?

hmm, so I would say "us too" (informal) "we do too" (formal)

Hello everyone!

I have a doubt:

We say "me too", but if I want to say "us", which one is more common:

"us too" or "we too"?

Hello!

If I have a sticker album and a friend has a sticker that I need, do I "trade" stickers? "exchange stickers"?

And also, do kids play any games with stickers, besides collecting them?

Thanks!

exactly thorx89 that's what I thought. But "trunk" is also very american, I guess british people would say "boot", so I thought it was weird to have "luggage" and "trunk" in the same sentence.

Unless somewhere in the US people say "luggage"

Hello everyone!

I have a question for you people, I found the word "luggage" in a book, the sentence was "The luggage will go in the trunk."

Since it's a book written by an American, and the word "trunk" is also used in the US, I wondered, would an American say "luggage" instead of "baggage"?

I think toot is what I'm looking for... for example
I dial and while I wait for the person to answer I hear "toot .... toot... toot..." is that right?

Topic: drop sb a line
Posted: Friday, February 3, 2012 6:22:52 AM
I found this lyrics from a teen band from the US:

You know I've got your number
and you know that you've got mine
I was wonderin if some time
you'd drop me a line
I see you every day and I fall
and I wonder if I'm
gonna get that call
well I'm home all the time
please drop me line
I wanna hear your voice on the phone
everyday when i get home
I'm home all the time
Drop me a line
drop me a line, drop me a line


they're clearly talking about a phone call. I guess it's a new thing maybe? Because the new generations may think that "line" come from "telephone line"
