You'd think a grammar monster would eat grammar, not kids...

I had a nightmare about being chased by grammar monsters. I kid you not. I was eight years old and they were coming after me because I had used an adjective incorrectly, and said that an adverb was an adjective, and the feelings involved in the dream were deeply mortifying - which I know is ridiculous. Therefore, I feel the need to ask some questions of my friends list.
