Grammar Queen


Yesterday in the swim locker room, a little girl was telling a story and started with “If I was..” Morrigan cut her off directly and said, “No, it’s ‘If I were.’” The girl went back to her story and started again, “If I was…” only to have Morrigan stop her and say “No, you need to use the subjunctive. It’s ‘If I were.’”

I do love my little nerd, even if her team mates may not appreciate her attention to grammatical detail.
