I've already missed two weeks! It's so difficult to catch up! I have so many questions! I'm so confused! But, first things first: "answer to the name of ..." In your example you don't use the phrase word for word, so can I say: "At work, everyone calls me Uee, but when at home I only answer to Phooey"? I don't actually have to use "...the name of.." Will that be correct? Or do I have to say "when at home I only answer to the name of Phooey"?

Hello Yulia - yes, you can use the phrase either way. Is that really your name at home? That's a tough house...
