    Knocked the Zorro mask right out of poor Ed Rosen's hand.

    Knocked the Zorro mask right out of poor Ed Rosen's hand.

    I googled the expression and found the following dialogue: B: She walked in on me at the most inopportune time! Knocked the Zorro mask clean out of Ed Rosen's hand!

    Can't quite catch Lois' last name

    I have no intention of making a big issue out of this. I just came across an unfamiliar family name and I thought native speakers might be able to tell easily what it was. Please understand names are sometimes very difficult for us.

    Beta or Delta variant

    How about the following sentence? "Since the staff parking lot is closed over the weekend, please use either the visitor or student parking lot." Should I use "lot" or "lots" in this case?
