Sentence: Lucy had not worked for the New Jersey Waste Management Company for very long. She had been hired to make the books read more creatively for the tax man. She had been warned to be careful or else... Her one teeny tiny error had been in accidentally deleting all the year's pay records for the 200 goombas who were 'employed' by the company. Lucy's feeling of remorsenode had grown over the day and intensified when her boss, Big Tony, had called a meeting of the family to decide who was gonna delete Lucy, permanently. Who knew being an accountant could be so dangerous???
