"My Treat"

Agreeing with a Positive Statement

I love fried rice.
I do, too. (I do love fried rice, too).

I can put this on my expense account.
I can, too. (I can put this on my expense account, too).

When showing that a statement is also true for you, you can use an auxiliary verb and "too." Auxiliary verbs are words like "do," "can," have," etc. They help give meaning to the main verb. Notice how in each agreement example above, the sentence is shortened to use only the auxiliary verb.

29

I love fried rice.
I do, too./So do I.

I already ate.
I did, too./So did I.

I can put this on my expense account.
I can, too./So can I.

I could go for a steak.
I could, too./So could I.

You can also use the format "so" + auxiliary verb + "I." Make sure to put the auxiliary verb before "I" if you use this option. For the simple present, use auxiliary verb "do." For the simple past tense, use auxiliary verb "did."

30

Agreeing with a Negative Statement

I don't like sushi very much.
I don't either./Neither do I.

I didn't eat breakfast.
I didn't either./Neither did I.

I can't stand greasy food.
I can't either./Neither can I.

When showing that a negative statement is also true for you, you can use the negative form of the auxiliary verb and "either." You can also use the format "neither" + positive form of auxiliary verb + "I." Again, make sure to put the auxiliary verb before "I" if you use this option, and make sure that the verb is positive.

I'm having a surprise birthday party for Robert on Friday. Where? Central Park. We'll be in the rear of the park at three, and the party will start at four. Please, don't bring a present, but we would like people to contribute something to the dessert table if you're able. He loves rice pudding and rice cakes. Wear royal blue because that's his favorite color. There are no open flames allowed this time of year, so make sure to prepare everything at home. Also, there is no glass allowed in the grassy areas, so please bring plastic or other nonbreakable containers. Roger is coordinating our efforts, so please call him if you have any questions. I give you my word: the party will be out of this world!

Estou preparando uma festa de aniversário surpresa para Robert na sexta-feira. Onde? Parque Central. Estaremos na parte de trás do parque às três e a festa começará às quatro. Por favor, não traga um presente, mas gostaríamos que as pessoas contribuíssem com algo para a mesa de sobremesa, se você puder. Ele adora arroz doce e bolos de arroz. Use azul royal, porque essa é sua cor favorita. Não há chamas abertas permitidas nesta época do ano, portanto, certifique-se de preparar tudo em casa. Além disso, não há vidro permitido nas áreas gramadas, portanto, traga plástico ou outros recipientes não quebráveis. Roger está coordenando nossos esforços, então, por favor, ligue para ele se tiver alguma dúvida. Eu dou minha palavra: a festa estará fora deste mundo!
