DO THESE MAKE SENSE?
Something is not quite right when one reads the examples below. What is amiss?
If you are having trouble figuring it out, refer to last Tuesday’s entries and make comparisons.
Correct the flaws.
“Windsor police arrested three alleged drug dealers Tuesday and found three children inside a house used to store drugs while executing a search warrant.”

“At the airport, Zoe found him at a metal building; inside he found a guy with a pilot’s hat half asleep in a couch, who go groggily to his feet and asked, ‘You the state trooper?’ ”

The word for today is “métier”.
(I know “métier” is a French word, but keep in mind that its root is Latin.)
