Aardvark
« on: October 09, 2017, 05:59:32 pm »
John was walking along the road when he met is friend Bill who had an Aardvark under his arm
John: If I were you, I'd take that Aardvark to the zoo.
Bill: Good idea. And off he sets.
The next day, John is walking along the road and sees Bill with an Aardvark under his arm.
John: I thought you were going to take that Aardvark to the zoo.
Bill: I did. We're off to the cinema today :)
Best wishes,

If it's not used by a native speaker it's not idiomatic. And idiom trumps grammar every time. Jack Wilkerson†
