As is typical of most TriadCity commands, Grin searches for <thing> in a specific order, starting with the room you're in, then your worn or wielded equipment, then your inventory. So, if there's a box in the room, and a box in your inventory, the command "grin box" will refer to the one in the room, not your inventory. You'd need to use "grin 2.box" for the latter.

Grin can be modified with an arbitrary word of your choice. Usually you'll use an intensifying adverb as shown in the examples above. Note that Grin does not use this modifier as a search specifier when looking for <thing>. Instead Grin displays this modifier via the Game channel. Thus you can "grin sloppily", "grin goofily,", and so on. You can also "grin 18373649" or "grin toothpaste-like", so, please don't. It's up to you to get the syntax right.
