Use a (noun) to quickly gather up everything that’s on the floor, then (verb) quickly while yelling (a silly word) at the pile you just made. With any luck, all your (plural noun) will now be right where they belong. For the rest of your chores, remember this: (1) A (noun) works twice as fast as a (noun) to clean the floor. (2) (verb ending in -ing) the dishes is better than actually washing them. (3) Putting (plural noun) under your shoes makes (verb ending in -ing) out the trash a snap. And (4) (verb ending in -ing) the toys where they belong will never be hard again once you start using a(n) (adjective) (noun) to help you out!
