    Should be either “you brag”, or “brags” to match the previous sentence.

    A semi-colon at “games,” does it too.

    Exactly. It’s not the time, it’s the motivation that is the issue.

    Correct. That is why we used to be up at 5 on Saturday mornings. Got to what those cool F86 Sabre Jets doing aerobatics, followed by, The Lone Ranger, The Texas Rangers, Mighty Mouse, Heckle and Jeckle and various other shows. By nine most would be over and the parents would be up and about.

    Nope. It’s used as an infinitive.

    “to play computer games and brag about it online” is grammatically 100% correct.

    I would make “brags” agree with “gets up at 5” since he’s probably not bragging online at the same time as he’s playing the games. If “brag” agrees with “play” then they’re both being done when he gets up at 5.

    Bad move, kid. Miss Plainwell has probably played some of those games.

    You’re correct; but the intent of “to play” and “to brag” needs to be spelled out since there is such a disconnect in the speech/printing of her comment.
    It’s fine to refer to “the preparation and presentation of food” for your event. There is less clarity in a reference to “the preparation that involved so many people and presentation of food” for your event.
    Still, few people would have been confused by Miss Plainwell.

    Sorry, I think Miss Plainwell is right – he probably DOES brag online at the same time as he’s playing, if he’s anything like my son and his friends.

    Reminds me of criminals who brag online and get caught.

    I got up at 5AM on a work day to play Half-Life 2 on release.

    No regrets, Dr. Freeman.

    Grammer, schammer — let’s just enjoy Ms Plainwell shooting him down.

    That looks like a interesting discovery about waking later for kids. But schools don’t want to do it because it could interfere with a lot of things, including sports, which are actually a lot more important than academics. If you have a choice between football and math. Forget about it. It’s football and sports all the way! When the kids grow up, chances are they will all be pro-footballers. On the slim chance they don’t make the pro ranks their football and other sports training will give them the powerful self-discipline to master tough material in college. It’s probably better to study things at a young age, but we are Americans! We don’t study!

    Miss Plainwell is looking rather comely today.
