General Writing and Grammar Help/Enjoy yourself

Advertisement


Question
A: Where are you now?
B: Iím travelling in New York.
A: Wow! Are you enjoying yourself? Are you having a blast? Are u having a good time?

- Dear Brian! Are "Are you enjoying yourself?", "Are you having a blast?" and "Are u having a good time?" natural to ask in this context?

Thank you so much, Brian.

Answer
Hi Steven!

Yes, they are!  I think it would be strange to ask all of them at the same time, though!

Also, "a blast" is a much stronger expression than "a good time" or to "enjoy yourself".  It means "to have a VERY good time", so it is slightly different.

You're welcome, and I hope that helps!
