Sentence: Howard and Lisa's mere one bag of trash on the curb awaiting pick-up, after Christmas, was shear rubbishful thinking. The other fourteen bags were neatly piled up in the back yard to be placed out each week, one at a time. They would feel less like abusers. That is until the family of raccoons got ahold of the pile one moonlit night!
