    Question Sentence Construction

    Is the construction of this sentence correct? If not, why?

    I argued with them until I was blue in the face, thinking that I was only wasting my time.

    Re: Sentence Construction

    You could change thinking to knowing (full well),

    A. I argued with them until I was blue in the face, knowing full well that I was only wasting my time.

    B. Knowing full well that I was only wasting my time, I still argued with them until I was blue in the face.
