There was this grammar teacher I used to have in middle school. She was relatively young and rather good-looking and nice. I mean, she was nice at the beginning while I still did all my homework religiously, then something must have cracked. I clearly remember her giving us a lot of grammar tagging homework, you know, where you have to identify all the different parts of speech. Which was good of course, because grammar is important, but to still waste all that time on present progressive third person plurals at age 13, when every decent young man starts opening his eyes to problems of a wholly different nature, always seemed kind of futile to me.
