Sentence: After a long tiring day, Lily wilted into her shower seat. Lily looked lovely, wearing nothing but her water beads. She slipped into sleep, not shallow, but ever so deep. Even when the shower bower, now her water bed, was turning into a water cooler, she slept on, for her Lily pads kept her warm. Lily especially enjoyed the water on her knee, and the water on her brain. In her dreams, she sprouted angelic water wings, and took a glide, then came down a heavenly water slide. When she awoke, she swirled and played in some soaksuds. From her soakbox, you could hear Lily, now a soakfixture, speaking ... nay ... 'twas Lily ... singing in the rain.

Etymology: SOAK, FIXTURE. Soak - to spend long periods in water. Fixture - 1) One that is invariably present in and long associated with a place. Fixture - 2) permanent plumbing appendages, apparatus, or appliances.

It wasn't her Gene that made her sing...it was her chromosoaks...
