    The man's skinny legs

    Would you please correct my mistakes in the following sentences?

    1. The man's skinny legs looked as if they might buckle under him.
    2. Steam and a smell of burnt oil wafted out of a kitchen vent.
    3. The boy was kicking the ball and playing keepy-ups in the park.

    Re: The man's skinny

    I have added a word to your thread title. You have a habit of ending titles a word or two early.

    3. You'll also see and hear 'playing keepy-uppy'.
