Twerk or Treat

I can't tell you how disappointed I was when I heard this morning on the radio that the most popular Halloween costume this year is predicted to be the Twerking Miley Cyrus. "Great!" I thought to myself. "Now what am I going to go as?".

I didn't want to dress like everyone else, so I put away my hot pants and tongue extension. Then, I racked my brain: what am I good at besides twerking? It finally came to me--grammar!

So here are some grammar costumes I came up with.

I could go as the Present Perfect:


 Or a Tense:


Or a Relative Clause:


Or I guess if I wanted to be a little more risque and go for the slutty costume, I could go as a comma. That little hussy will punctuate almost anything!

I think "Dangling Participle" is the way to go. Or is that just a costume for guys?

Haha I love your ideas! Very cute! And I gotta say I did see some miley costumes that were pretty funny. I know I should be ashamed of myself...

Hmm...when I think of the classic "slutty" costumes, a comma does not seem to make my list...

A preposition though...ooh baby!

You're so funny! I've missed you!
As you know, I only crawled out of writers' cave to participate in all the Halloween madness. Now, I'm going right back in. However, I'll have to sneak out once in a while to see what you've got up your sleeve.

I'd love to dress up but I need someone to do it with me so we can go as a pair.

How is it possible I haven't visited your blog for this long? This semester really did get me!

According to your future post, you can wear a punk grammar costume. I might do that next year!
