Sentence: Brenda has a serious stickyddiction. Whatever inane little thought pops into her addlepated mind gets jotted down on a Post-it and stuck to the fridge. There are so many now that there is no surface of the ice box visible. Brenda doesn*t know how many layers deep they go but last week the weight of these little papers sheered off the hinge of the refrigerator door. After a short panic attack and a few deep breaths Brenda duct taped the door back in place and has taken to eating only dry cereal and stuff out of her freezer. Her friends are considering an intervention.

Sentence: To plot her, well, plot, Minerva, added ideas on sticky notes to her story board. This was her first attempt at writing a book and she found that the notes jarred her memory and helped her to focus on the progression of her writing. By the time she got to Chapter 20, her entire work cubicle area was covered in multi-colored sticky papers. Everyone laughed at her decorating skills. One day she came in to find that all the little papers had fallen to the floor in a colorful blizzard. Minerva's notearearioty came to the attention of the entire office. Her screams were heard all over the building. The book she was working on was tentatively called "Sticky Tickets -How to Keep From Becoming Unglued in Today's Business Climate".
