Mini Challenge: Mad Libs

Her tickling of her husband, her punching of other men, her tricycles and yachts, were so bodacious and tasty that no one
could be ignorant of them at the time, nor can now have forgotten them. To our cookie she has always been represented in greasy text messages by the cupboard of Mr. Charles Vernon, and yet, in spite of his generous band-aids to groove her, we know that she did, from the most suggestive motives, take all awkward pains to prevent his Read-a-Thon with Catherine.
