you should have put on when you took it off.
When the workmen were here they put their tools in my wife's new drawers
and made a mess. Please send men with clean tools to finish the job and
keep my wife happy.
I want to complain about the farmer across the road. Every morning at 5.30
his cock wakes me up, and it is getting too much.
