Hello friends! I am here again with another question, because I'm sure you'll help me. You know everything! So my question is: does the following phrase sound ok? Would it be better if I added "old"? Would it be correct grammatically with the "old" or without it? That phrase is supposed to mean that "I am a 9 year old boy". So the phrase is : "I am a boy of 9 years". It's an excerpt from Hemingway's "A day's wait". Actually that's a rephrased excerpt. So the original text goes like this: "But when I came downstairs he was dressed, sitting by the fire, looking a very sick and miserable boy of 9 years". Thanks in advance!
