Sentence: Maxine was shiftwrecked due to keyrosion. Her computer was spacebarred and pitted, her mousepooped from exhaustion and she was becoming debilitated from numberless keystrokes.

She worried that she had become typecast, spending every day wading in the typingpool for her shift to come in.

She used her trusty keyboard one last time to type up her letter of resignation and booked herself on the next cruise to the islands.
