OXYGEN LEAVING THE ROOM….
This is what happens when your job is to teach grammar, and, all of the sudden, you’re teaching that very same grammar, not to college students, but to your daughter.
Let me just get this out of the way… when it comes to teaching my daughter I am as calm as the grave. Calm, calm, patient and calm.
My daughter… is not.
First of all, I do not know if it is because she is a pre-teenager, but she constantly interrupts me. “Mom, what does it mean when the verb has two subjects?”
“Well, when the verb has two subjects”
“I mean, I think it means there’s not change, or is their a change but not like a change that matters, or possibly the change could be that you don’t need a FANBOYS word with the comma, and can I have a snack? I’m soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo hungry!”
“Okay, sure you can have a snack, but let’s talk about….”
“I’m hungry now! I can’t think when I’m huuuuuuunnnnngry!”
Other than grammar it’s all cool. Grrrrrrrrrammar.
