    But she didn’t come... something about friends birthdays and expensive flights.

    In this sentence I mean: The girl couldn't come because she had multiple birthday celebrations to attend.

    Is it: friends birthdays or friends' birthdays?

    Many thanks,

    Edit: Also, is it, 'we are friends' or 'we are friend's'?

  2. It's friends' birthdays.

    Please ask only one question per thread. (Hint: you need to have a reason to use an apostrophe.)

    Thanks for the first answer. As for the hint to the second question, I could say we belong to each other as friends. So therefore the possessive apostrophe might be relevant?

    You really need to put it in another thread. Sorry to be so firm about that but the idea is to make sure the forum remains readily searchable, and you can't search for a topic if it's buried in another thread.
