friend has said something, that is, something which is not true. I want to talk about what my friend said, but I won't actually say those words. I know I can use a sentence with following form:
My friend said so and such.
My friend said Bla Bla Bla.
I want to know: Is using so and such better than Bla Bla Bla ...? Or is there a better expression would we use?
