It's probably a basic question but I got a little obsessive about it. When you 'take a ride', can you be the driver, too?
- Do these two sentences:
I took a ride in my car/in a car.
make you think of two different situations? e.i. 'in my car' makes you think I'm driving it and 'in a car' makes you think someone else is the driver? Or in both you think of me sitting in the back seat?
Is the same true about bicycle? 'I take a ride on my bike' means 'I ride my bike?'
How about a 'bus' or any public transport? Is a bus driver while driving the bus taking a ride, too?
