How would you rewrite this funny modifier:
Freshly painted, Jim left the room to dry.
Does this sentence mean that he left the room for something else, and he left the room to dry?
How would you rephrase it so that it makes sense?
Is it a participial phrase - or a dangling modifier?
Feedback is always greatly appreciated.
I have another one:
After drinking too much, the toilet kept moving.
It's obvious what is meant by this - and many people say that but ... how can you rewrite it. Now matter how often I tried this, I always get the same meaning: the toilet is moving (and not in my head) .
