Sentence: When Jenna's husband would begin a droning matrimonologue about the good old days in the frat house in college, she would escape through the back door in her mind. Today she found herself in the middle of the Caribbean aboard a pirate ship, with Captain Fabio, who proceeded to use his "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Spray" in the most debaucherous of manners. Oddly enough, her husband was having a very similar fantasy, but with substantially more Greek-letter-inscribed paddling.

Shamefully, I must admit marriage came to mind for me too. Great word!
