Sentence: Kimberly never bought rock candy without buying orajel or anbesol. She knew the sugary pointidbits would scrape their way across the roof of her mouth while she scarfed them down, but the sweet thorsels were too much to resist, so she tried only to alleviate the symptoms rather than prevent them. About the side effect: "Oh, it's the greatest tongue scrapper around" she explained to Zinnia while drooling blood, "it's done wonders for my breath."
