Sentence: Vicky's birthday wasn't getting any better. The day had suddenly turned unseasonably warm, then her dog got loose and she'd had to chase him for 20 minutes before catching him. On top of that, her car's air conditioning stopped working. By the time she got home, she just wanted to take a nice, cool bath. She'd opened the door to a surprise party, and now all of her friends wanted to give her a big hug. She was so funkomfortable!
