Dear Ambrosia,

have You ever read the essay entitled "The Subjunctive Mood," by James Thurber? You're always talking about the subjunctive, and that happens to be one of my favorite essays, as well as where i first learned about that bit of grammar. it's a pretty helpful little piece, that is both instructive and hilariously funny. i think You'd like it.

A: Dear Trillian,

I've not read it. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the heads-up.



*Maybe it'll help me win my next argument with Melyngoch over subjunctive. Right. Like I'm *ever* going to win an argument with Melyngoch.
