    “Grandma slowly dries up the cup in her hand.” (from Blue on a Red Day) I find this phrasing awkward. Not even sure if I am interpreting it properly.

      Perhaps it feels clunky to you as it’s avoiding the split infinitive, an alternative being ‘Grandma slowly dries the cup up in her hand.’ but then that could imply that her hand is also ‘up’. Thank you for reading. I’ll answer your other comment/email in the next few days (when I’ve caught up with a few deadlines).


We'd love you to leave a comment, thank you!
