I am really struggling with combinations of grammar structures.  We smushed two grammar structures together in a sentence, requiring that two different verb conjugations needed to be done in one grammar mashup.  My brain exploded.  It crawled off into a corner to accept this miserable turn of events that I might have to do multiple verb conjugations within one sentence.

Isn’t it hard enough to get one verb conjugation correct?

I can’t remember quite what it was that teacher was trying to get me to learn.  Something like combining the grammar for becoming with the grammar for want to all related to eating somehow.  Who knows?  My brain shut down.  I need time to accept multiple verb conjugations and combination of grammar structures.
