Callitosis

Sentence: The weekend was just too short and the beach too perfect. Though it was the middle of October, the sun was hot, and the surf was up. Bianca decided there was no way she was going to drive back into the city. Instead, she planned on coming down with a really good case of callitosis. Not only was she going to take Monday off, but she planned to let her boss know this bout was so bad, she would not only be out until Thursday, BUT would most probably show up with a bad case of skin discoloration from the antibiotics the doctor had prescribed.
