      1. Hey Rach, Rach…I always wondered if we had to use the word in its current tense, like the word lurk…do we have to use lurk, or can we use lurks, or lurking? I have used the word as stated for each week at least once, but then will use it throughout in different tense. I sometimes find it difficult to use it as is, but have managed to at least once in my stories so far.

        Having to teach elementary grammar makes me think too much. 🙂
