Sentence: Marty closed eyes under the shower, and in a state of dejampoo, reached down to grab the bottle. You'd think the odd shape would have warned him. No. He twisted it open. You'd think the acrid smell of lemon-ammonia would have alerted him. No. He massaged it into his hair. You’d think that the corrosive power of toilet-bowl bleach etching into his scalp would have stirred him from his reverie. Well, it did actually -- after about five minutes. Marty is now a very bleached blonde.
