Sentence: After the 22nd time Mark's father had died in under two years, Dana realized she had to turn a deaf ear to his desperate pleas for fidelpity. She stormed out of his apartment, slamming the door behind her. Mark sat motionless on the couch, until he heard tires squealing away from the building. He stood, slowly, and walked to the bedroom. He strapped his right arm to his torso using an Ace bandage, carefully slipped into the Vietnam era Army fatigues he'd bought at the surplus store, and carefully applied the mohair mustache with spirit gum. After gently easing the wheelchair into the trunk, he headed to the Peppermint Hippo for a night of free lapdances.

As always, I can't wait to see what will happen next in your sentence. Always a surprise twist to the ending. He sure knew how to fiddle around to get pity! Another marvelous creation!
