I'll type a reasonable request and get no love from the program because I haven't followed some obscure dictate of the genre. I know that IF authors can't make allowances for every variant that a user might type in for "pick up ye flask" but, dammit, I'd like to see "pick up the flask" and maybe even "grab flask" or "pocket flask" work. I feel like I get about half-way into an IF and then I'll get stuck, not because I don't know what to do next, but because I can't figure out how to parse what I want to do in an acceptable way.
