Sentence: Angus tried to think back to how they had met, before all the strife, all the anger. He'd first glimpsed her in Best Buy, on a Sunday afternoon, and from the first moment, they knew how to push each others buttons. She was different from all the other girls...she loved to play video games, check football stats, and look at pornography. Things progressed quickly, until one day his friend Dr. McAffee called. "I know this breaks every doctor-patient confidentiality rule, but she has a virus. We've isolated it, but you might watch her to see if she's been seeing anyone else." It was less than a week later that he found his own son, splayed in front of her radiance, lulled into her sweet siren song of illegal and illicit music and videos. After the fight, and she had gone to sleep, he decided he had restart his life with any hope for their relationship peripheral at best. Theirs was now a diskfunctional love, and he had to remove her from his memory. The liquor cabinet awaited.
