How are you?
If someone said,
'I would like to go back to the time that I was not sick.'
I'd think that sounds weird and that it would be much better if it was,
'I would like to go back to the time WHEN I was not sick.'
Did I get it right?
I would have no doubt about it if I hadn't run into these.
Let me show you some expressions which include 'the time that S V'
1. From the time that I was a child, I loved interacting with people.
2. I never thought I'd be unfaithful. The whole time that we were kissing, I kept thinking - Why don't I feel guilty?
3. This brings me back to the time that I was a Sunday School teacher in the First Presbyterian Church in Astoria, Long Island, New York.
( From a book 'I flunked Santa Cluas' by Joyce Holsclaw )
Are these just very rare examples people usually wouldn't use?
I wish you tell me these are, strictly speaking, all wrong so I don't need to care.
Thank you for reading.
Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
