might one say "In three days..."? I can't think of a difference in meaning with "after" in this context.
"After three days" not being the commonest turn of phrase in English, when can one use this sentence?
- We're going somewhere in the future. Three days later we're going home.
- We're somewhere away from home. We were supposed to stay there longer than three days but instead are going home after being there three days.
- We're going home three days from now.
- As part of a narration about past events in the "historical present."
Something else entirely?
