    No, it's not meant that way. seriously, does the sentence have a misplaced or dangling modifiers?

    If it wasn't meant that way, then it must have a misplaced modifier. We try to get adjectives and adjective phrases as close as possible to the word they modify.

    How would you rewrite it to make it clear that you are tying your shoes?
