this too shall pass
or, (choose one):

a) it's just part of my affected online persona; you know, like having a strident, importunate tone of voice in all of one's posts

b) I have a hand condition which makes it hard for me to type, much less use the SHIFT key

c) I'm just a shiftless and lazy guy

d) it's the rule that says normal rules don't apply when you're just goofing around in a non-formal context

e) all of the above

f) a, b, and d only

Of course, tsuwm, the answer to your riddle is (F).

Yes, you are obviously SHIFTLESS becausethe whole point is that you don't SHIFT, and obviously you are NOT LAZY because you prepared this elaborate quiz and test.
Ergo, (C) is contradictory, and inasmuch as we are instructed to choose only one answer (an answer we could not possibly discern without more information) our only other option is to choose (F).

Only there can we cover all three of your shortcommings in one fell swoop.

I can truly feel the compassion of the pastor to rebuild / in rebuilding the church.

Are the above sentences fine/natural? Which words in bold should I use?

My suggestions:

The grand ceremony was awesome.
This ceremony is to commemorate the renovation of the church.
The pastor was passionate about the renovation of the church.


Thanks.
