When I’m learning grammar, I feel smart and stupid at the same time. Smart because I like to think I have some knowledge about pronoun antecedent agreement, dangling modifiers, possessives, etc. But stupid because I don’t know everything.
There’s an annoying part of me that expects my small brain to know everything, especially when it comes to anything related to syntax or morphology. That part is also responsible for making me feel like I have to be perfect all the time. Guess what? I’m not. What a surprise.
She’s just going to have to accept my faulty judgement and erroneous ways.
