- Moonless night
- Crooned – To hum or sing softly.
- A low shriek
Another nice set of words and phrases! This time I am trying in reverse order:
Sheila let out a low shriek when she saw all the caramel on the rubberized counter top. She immediately went to the supply cabinet to get some acid which she thought would quickly clean up the sticky mess.
As she worked Sheila crooned the latest hit song she had just heard. Soon even the rubber was gone and she realized there was a granite top underneath all that rubber.
Thinking that was nice, she started putting away all the debris and cleaning materials, when after about halfway through she remembered it was almost the appointed time for her important guests to arrive.
In her hectic rush of cramming the rest of the cleaning materials into the supply cabinet, she jammed the heel of her hand onto a loose tack. It was jammed so hard that she had to rush to the hospital, and missed the party entirely before being released.
Moral: On a moonless night, always turn on all the available lights to avoid injury.
