A. F. is something I want to keep to myself


Explanation:
this is how I would translate the sentence you proposed earlier.
John, we can't translate entire sentences, most of us are translators working at home under strict deadlines more often than not.
Also, please remember to assign points to the answerer who you feel has helped you the most. This is a free service and translators simply ask to get feedback from askers also in the form of points.

All the best,
