    The red mist tends to descend

    Dear Teachers

    In the sentence "Sorry, the red mist tends to descend when I'm confronted with grammatical ignorami." What does "the red mist tends to descend" actually mean?

    Please advise

    Anthony the learner

    Re: The red mist tends to descend

    Some people say that when they start to become very angry, it is as if a red mist (mist is like fog) comes down in front of their eyes. They are unable to see anything except their anger.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
