Sentence: Ever since daylight savings time had destroyed her life, Kimberly napped during her lunch break. She was not a peaceful sleeper. Often, Kimberly woke up with a start and once woke up to realize that the weekly office meeting was starting; she rushed to the conference room unaware of the drool on her blouse and the paperclip embedded in her face. She burst in asking "what'd I miss?!" frantic and breathing heavily. Zinnia calmly leaned toward Jared and whispered "I think she missed her linedament."
