Here are the three lines I used:

5. The temperature reached 102 yesterday.
6. I have a bi wart on my foot.
7. My friend seems to smile a lot.

"You know Erik, you shouldn't spend so much time under the A/C..."

"Give me a break Leiyah." He snapped at his dark-skinned frined with annoyed blue eyes. Droplets of sweat caused his blonde hair to cling to his forehead. "We're in the middle of a heat wave! The A/C is GOD right now!"

"It's not that hot Erik."

"Were you outside yesterday?? It felt like someone put the temperature on hell and LEFT it there!"

Leiyah sighed and shook her head. "You're going to make yourself sick."

"No I'm not. You worry too much." Erik laughed as he set the A/C on its highest level. "So, what happened to that friend of yours?"

"Which one?"

"You know, that red head you went to school with."

"The one that looks like she has a permanent face lift?"

"Yeah! That's the one!"

"Her name's Delia." Leiyah frowned lightly in contemplation. "I hear from her once in a while. Last time we spoke, she was engaged."

Erik raised an eyebrow. "Somone actually MARRIED her? She's got more rays of sunshine coming out of her than the sun itself! How did that guy deal with her?"

"I don't know! I hardly talk to her. Why'd you ask anyway?"

"I think I saw her face in the paper the other day. Looked like she got herself into some trouble."

"What kind?"


"I always said it's those happy types that you need to keep an eye on." Leiyah looked at her watch. "Well, I'm out of here. Got another doctor's appointment."

"Didn't you go to one this morning?"

She nodded. "Yeah, but that was my regular checkup. This one is for my feet."

"But you have nice feet!" Erik shouted. "There's nothing wrong with your feet!"

"I have fucking Mount Everest on my foot. There's nothing 'nice' about having mountain ranges growing on your feet. And it hurts like all hell too." Leiyah hobbled towards the door. "I'll be back in a little while."

"Hey Leiyah?" She turned to face Erik, who wore a smile of mischief. "Don't grow any mushrooms while you're at it. You know I hate fungii."

"Very funny, asshole." She snickered as she left. "Very funny."
