Sample text:

Gretchen Cantrell looked around her best friend’s “I got promoted” party, and felt let down. She tossed her shoulder-length blond hair behind her ears, and remembered what Cindy had said.

“Come to the party, Gretch! Please? Lots of good-looking, available guys will be there, I promise!” Cindy had begged the day before. “You’ll find someone there to help you forget that dimwit you just dumped!”

“Cindy, please, will you just let me have a couple more days of my personal pity-party? I don’t want anyone else right now. Burke sucked too much life out of me as it is!”

Cindy began to wring her hands, and then twist her auburn locks. “But, Gretch-en, I don’t want to have this party without you! Pleeeeaaaassseee?” Cindy had clasped her hands together, fingers entwined, and tucked them under her chin.

Gretchen, twenty-six years old to Cindy’s twenty-five, rolled her eyes and said, “All right! If you will just stop whining!”

“Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou,” Cindy began repeating, fast enough to make the two words sound as if they were only one, pulling Gretchen into a big bear hug while simultaneously jumping up and down. She pulled away, but left her hands on Gretchen’s shoulders. “Oh, Gretch, I promise I’ll make it up to you! I promise!”

Gretchen waved her friend off. “What-ever, Cindy! Jeez!”
