When I use adverbs of time, and if the sentence gets long when I want to place it after the whole sentence like this:
I sent a person to get myself a nice, delicious table of dinner today.
Janice and her friends went to the mall to flirt with the cute guys who congregate at the food court yesterday.
Do "today" and "yesterday" modify only the infinitive phrases? Or do they modify the whole sentence? And can someone please tell me how it is grammatically correct to put those adverbs of time? Those sentences sound a little off to my ear while I am unable to explain why. It seems to me that I have to put those adverbial of times in front of the infinitive phrase like this:
I sent a person today to get myself a nice, delicious table of dinner.
Janice and her friends went to the mall yesterday to flirt with the cute guys who congregate at the food court.
