"Oink!" He yelled at the dog. She was startled at the odd onomatopoeia until the creature started morphing into a pig. Her eyes widened as she slowly reached for his hand, grabbed it, and started running in the opposite direction. The pig gave chase.

"Are you trying to embarrass me? You know we can't afford that helicopter chocolate fountain that shoots chocolate rain on everyone! We can only get the jello one and that's final!" He slammed the phone down and disconnected from his daughter.

The brave fireman rushed headlong into the house to save the occupants inside. Alas, a wormhole opened and swallowed him and the people in the house up. He went on a long adventure and came back bearing a box of diamonds, but no one would believe his story.

He is prone to bloviate whenever the family visits, going on about how it was back in the war of 2059, when our robot army battled the aliens. He likes to describe how the robots had to burn human fecal matter for fuel, which I thoroughly do not believe nor do I approve of its discussion in polite company.

Aack, he thought to himself. They asked the theology professor to say grace. He was droning on and on. "Thank thee Father, for all the provisions that thou hast given ... ever since the Exodus, providing manna and quail from the heavens upon the Israelities - which they ungratefully received. Then providing all throughout history in various forms and ways ... like during the dry seasons of Israel's famines ..."

He was just a student; but he so wanted to skip his professor's bloviate with "rub a dub dub, thanks for the grub!"

He have a grudging not to the pawnshop merchant, knowing the blade was worth twice the amount quoted. If he didn't need the cash for the operation so quickly there was no way he would have sold it for so little.

He woke up the next day and found the blade next to him on the nightstand, a note stabbed by it.

Instead of seducing me, she traduced me by saying I had small feet. Well, the joke was on her since I got turned on by it. Because I got aroused, the cage was opened and my beloved saved from the vat of boiling acid.

It was with a grudging spirit that she had to admit that her mother had been correct. Nathan, while a gorgeous man to look at, had sought to traduce her in his attempt to dominate her.

It had been a long time since he had found a project that had truly stimulated his mind and drew out the very best of his talent. The curved, empty wall before him now though, begged for his touch and his brushed seemed to quiver in the anticipation of the cathexis of his creativity he would pour out through them.

His focus on his grandfather's recipe built up into a cathexis of frustration as he could not get the correct proportion of ingredients right. He exploded and screamed at the pot just as his food burst into flames and singed his eyebrows.

The slew of dragons reared up on their hind feet and charged forward, felling the soldiers like trees in a forest fire. The human commander scrambled to hold the line as they waited for the wizards to arrive.
