Sentence: John's wife would talk, and talk, and talk. But he didn't mind. He just pignored her, and nodded while he played hangman on his iphone. He didn't even notice when she unplugged it -- the batteries were still half full. And he had just figured out the last letter when she wrapped the cord tightly around his neck.
