comment What does the phrase “tiny bit of an ask” mean?
Using "ask" as a noun isn't extremely widespread, but it is recognized more and more. Some people, like me, find it extremely annoying.

comment Improper use of “Whenever”
@Kosmonaut: See the other answers. "Whenever I was ten years old" is a pretty typical (mis)use of the kind I am describing. To me, it clearly should be "When I was ten years old". In my experience, they don't mean "Whatever year it was that I turned ten years old", which is the case you are describing ("whenever it was that...")
