Earlier today Bossy found this People magazine article about Lisa Loeb’s marriage to Late Night With Conan O’Brien’s Musical Supervisor Roey Hershkovitz.
Bossy took interest in this story because of a little thing she likes to call Lisa Loeb’s drummer:
Bossy’s friend Ronny has recorded and toured with Lisa Loeb for years, and Bossy was curious whether he attended her wedding. So Bossy read on:
Aww. So Lisa Loeb and Late Night With Conan O’Brien’s Musical Supervisor Roey Hershkovitz exchanged vows in front of 275 guests in a New York restaurant. Or did they?
So wait — the guests will be served jumbo lump crab cakes and Caesar salad with anchovy beignets? So the wedding didn’t happen yet, right? Bossy read on.
So Lisa Loeb wanted her guests to feel cozy when they arrived at the reception. So it has taken place already! Or…?
Are scheduled to entertain?
This confusion regarding the past/present/future tense makes Bossy lose all will to live. Bossy hated when she will read this kind of story like she did six years from now.
Which is what today’s Ten-Word Challenge is all about. In exactly ten words, can you tell Bossy about your grammar/written word pet peeve?
And be sure to check back later today for the peeviest comments on the web.
