    Wolff wrote this scene not as a specific event, but as a scene that would occur every time he, Dwight, his mother and Pearl went to shooting competitions in other towns. His mother would do quite well, and Dwight would lose, blaming his losses on uncontrollable factors like the gun he was using. He felt intimidated by Toby’s mother and pulled into a tavern parking lot and went inside to drink, Toby’s mother followed later, and Toby and Pearl were left in the car.

No one else would understand the tension between parents and anxiety of waiting alone in the parking lot, scared that any minute a drunk “father” would be angered by the sound of the radio playing. For short amounts of time, Pearl and Toby’s differences were resolved and they began to sing. Their singing almost freed them from the situation, they were together with their heads close, queuing each other, but they weren’t in a car anymore.

    Misplaced and dangling modifiers can be a horror. Do you know what’s a modifier? It’s a word, a phrase or a clause that provides a description in a sentence. It can be an adjective, an adverb, an absolute phrase, an infinitive phrase, a participle phrase, and a prepositional phrase. You know what’s more?
