🖤🖤🖤 I'm just trying out this emoji-for-a-caption trend that seems to work for so many "influencers." Of course, I'm not an influencer. I can barely influence Lavi to stop sniffing every darn leaf, pebble, and molecule when we go on our walks. So how in the heck would I possibly influence humans who are way more stubborn and sometimes have less common sense? And I just failed at this emoji-for-a-caption attempt. Oh well. Such is life. This photo is from 2005. It is not from now. I am realizing I am using too many "to be" verbs in this post. I detest the little buggers. Eight of the most boring verbs in the English language, yet they are a necessity from time to time. In case you didn't listen to your English teacher in school, let me list the "to be" verbs here: is, am, are, was, were, be, being, been. They do not exhibit any action in the writing; they often steal action away from the subject of the sentence; and they sometimes create awkwardness or wordiness in sentences. But as I said, they are a necessity sometimes, like many unpleasant things in life. Grammar has nothing to do with this Throwback Thursday picture taken by the great John Stutz. Oh wait. I can connect the two. I know I can! When you use too many "to be" verbs in your writing, your message, caption, essay, or story runs the risk of falling as flat as my chest. 🖤🖤🖤 #throwbackthursday #grammarwizard #writersofinstagram #writerscommunity #grammarlesson #learngrammar #womenwholift #brainsandbrawn #lookingback #sarcasm #quads #quadzilla #legday #murves #girlswithmuscle #girlswithbiceps #sepiaphotography #notaninfluencer
