Believe it or not, these funky errors can occur from a brace mismatch, and
I've done it a few times.  Basically, your braces get unbalanced to where it
thinks you're not in a function anymore, so when you call that function, it
thinks you're declaring it.

That's not tech-speak in the least, but basically, check your }'s and {'s.
