    Default "Later" or "Tomorrow" ?

    Okay, here's the question.

    It's 2am on the 20th of the month. You're going to go out shooting at 8am on the 20th of the month. How would you tell that to your wife/hubby/parent?

    A) "Hey, I'm going out shooting at 8am tomorrow"
    or
    B) "Hey, I'm going out shooting at 8am later"

    Just wanting to know whether you guys say later or tomorrow when you're awake after midnight.

    Cheers

    later.

    what diff does it make? though "tomorrow" in the literal sense is really the next day, after 12am.

    My England is not so powderful but I think that both are grammatically wrong or at least badly phrased.

    You should simply say "Hey, I'm going out shooting at 8am " or "Hey, I'm going out shooting at 8am this morning" or "Hey, Later this morning, I'm going out shooting at 8am"

    For me there's quite a bit of redundancy ...

    "I'll be shooting later @ 8am."

    It should be "Hey, I'm going out tomorrow shooting at 8am morning later to shoot tomorrow."

    I would say "later". Unfortunately, it will still result in about 10 more lines of explaining

    This discussion reminds of Olympus insisting on calling their 4/3 "fullframe"...
