It's a tricky question, John. "Something" can be singular or plural as well. |
I cherish everything I have had, and I am not ready to give away any of them. My family and my own life and soul, for starters, of course. Should I sell my movie collections if someone's to offer me a million dollars? Probably I should. What about my English proficiency, say, if offered the same amount of money? Probably not. A million dollars won't buy me back the ten years I spent with English.
What about a billion? Mmm, that's more like it... I'll have to think about it. But you have to put the money where your mouth is first.
