Sentence: Darlene stared blankly at the receptionist as she entered the hospital, dazed with sudden sublimaction. "What the hell am I doing here?" she silently thought, as she reached to quizzically scratch her head with her bloodied stump of an arm.

Etymology: sublimation - to pass directly from a solid to a gas; action - something that is done; thus, the evolution of a solid purpose into an fleeting notion that melts into the ether
