It seems my grammar sucks these days. Example: I‘d originally typed “… grammar skills suck … .” (Did I do that right with the punctuation? I have a habit of always wanting stuff in the quotation marks, but cannot for the life of me remember when the hell they go on the outside. Could I have gotten away without the ellipses and still been correct?) My thought was that referencing grammar skills was plural, so I‘d use a singular verb thinking that the noun was “skills” and that “grammar” described the noun so it was a noun adjunct. But, then I thought, what if “grammar skills” is actually just a collective noun (like grammar)? Then it would get the singular verb. Also, I’ve fucked up typing “Anthony and I” and “Anthony and me” on almost every Facebook post.
What happened to me? I used to be certain and confident. Now, I‘m filled with doubt. I need a refresher. My verbs are weak, my tools are rusted, and I can barely type with this effin’ carpal tunnel BS.
What‘s going on? Is being sick my kryptonite? I thought at least I‘d always be able to write. My mind is mush. Even the swearing is cliched. The internet is useless. Any bozo can type the wrong answers and post them. The more I type this, the more sadness and frustration seeps into my soul. Worst post ever.
