Amanda, the specialist.

Sometimes in our discussions about Russian grammar, my professor calls on me to enlighten everyone with my "specialized" knowledge about the English language--and explain it in English. And while in my head, I can understand and recognize what a "predicate" is, it's another matter entirely to attempt to explain it. So basically, I feel like an idiot because, really, shouldn't any competent ELang major be able to explain the complexities of English grammar? Well...I haven't taken the grammar class yet, honestly.

But I can tell you the difference between uninterested and disinterested. That's interesting.
