Are there any left-handed pastel artists? If so, how do they/you get around the smudges created by dragging the left hand through what's just been drawn? (I have enough trouble with ball-point ink, thank you.)
Aren't hummingbirds a marvelous example of an animal and its food fitting together perfectly? (That's an intended use of the word "marvelous," by the way.)
Isn't there some sort of balance on the radio between using jargon without definition and slowing everything down by using definitions every sentence or two?
Do TV stations have vocal coaches? If not, most seem to need them for their news staffs. Commercials can use them, too -- muttering while talking about "an effective treatment" can sound just like "ineffective treatment."
Are there other holidays that seem to contradict themselves, such as most people not laboring on Labor Day? (No, not being a secretary on Secretary's Day doesn't count in the way I mean.)
