reading it rightPosted: February 20, 2014
It’s time for another blog entry on language.
I noticed the following note in the church worship bulletin:
dates can be shared
Certainly if you take I-10 east from Los Angeles to Palm Springs and Indio, you can stop on the way at Hadley Orchards and buy a big box of dates. You will probably want to share them rather than keeping the whole box to yourself. Then also, when I was in high school, a double date was well-accepted practice.
What the worship bulletin was talking about was that there were still open weeks for donating altar flowers, that the suggested donation was $45, but that two families could split that amount and be recognized for donating flowers on the same Sunday.
It helps to read the paragraph starting at the beginning.
