Hi,

Can I say these sentences?

1. If it's not too much of a hassle, pick up groceries for me.
2. If it's not too much hassle, pick up groceries for me.
3. If it's not too big a hassle, pick up groceries for me.

Thanks!

I don't mind numbers 1 or 2...
though if I were allowed to choose a fourth option, it would be:

If it's not too much of a hassle, could you please pick up some groceries for me.
