  • i think several is three to seven. That solves my number issues. On the other hand, Yesterday, three days ago, a week ago, and the associated days in between all become, "the other day."

    The other day i tried this new recipe...

    "Which other day?"

    I think it was saturday...

    "So, two days ago?"

    no, last saturday week.

    "So you mean last saturday week?"

    Yes, like i said- the other day i tried this new recipe...

      Interesting.

      The rest is hilarious. Thanx. :)

      The original meaning for "several" was "separate" (the adjective), and it came to mean "more than one" -- as in "on several occasions this week" to emphasise that these are seperate occurances rather than one continuous occurance. Now the dictionary definitions [reference.com] seem to define it as "more than two but not many" -- none of them specify a definite upper limit. As a kid, I heard (from other kids) more specific definitions of how many constituted "several" but I haven't heard such rules in other contexts.
