Sentence: The heliograph of sirens flickered on Bob's face as he walked slowly around the crumpled piece of tin that was once his car; Jane, the damsel to whom he was en route, was on his mind and he became a bit too greendy... until before long he found himself in the middle of the intersection with a frightening semi-truck on one end and an equally terrifying Mack truck on the other end. Bob, groaning inwardly, would have to postpone his date. The price of being greendy!
