June 2022 puzzler

Think of two words, 1 letter & 5 letters, that might kick off a sincere speech at a wedding. Change one letter, and move the space, to get two new words that might also begin a speech at a wedding, this time by someone a little more snarky.

This one was inspired by a New York Times crossword entry. The correct answer was the (1 5), but I thought it was the (2 4), because I guess I've heard way too many snarky wedding speeches.

The solution is at the bottom of the August 2022 newsletter.
