I don't know if we all "prefer", but if everyone acted on their preference, there wouldn't be any time of day where shops were empty.

comment A phone call you ask your friend to make to you in middle of a date
@tchrist I see. Since you're referring to the the title, I have to agree that it sounds a little mechanical and unnatural. I kind of rushed it.

English is my second language but that sounds about right to me. What grammar rule am I breaking here?

comment Notes folded into paper airplanes
@JonHanna with advent of paper thin and flexible displays, kids will soon be able to type up the note on their phone, fold it into an airplane and throw it without breaking anyone's head.

As @mplungjan mentioned, I don't mean any paper planes, only the ones with message on them.

comment Better way of saying “two people have worked on their stories together”
I think this is the best answer so far, and considering @TimLymington's comment, even if the attorney tells the witness what to say, it can still be referred to as "rehearsing", albeit not a legitimate one.

But would stating that the witness is "just corroborating the defendant's story", imply possible unlawful acts on parts of the witness and the defendants? I don't feel like corroboration has any negative connotations in itself.

Narrowed down who the witness may be in the example.

Looking at few dictionary meaning and examples online, it seems that the person colluding gets something significant in return (e.g. sum of money). I've edited the question to narrow down who the witness may be in the example. For instance, a family member who would not benefit from lying in the courtroom in any way other than saving the defendant from a long jail sentence.
