She strips /s the bed and pulls the pillowcases /iz off the pillows /z. She goes /s through the apartment, picking up everything in sight. Finally, she grabs some coat hangers /z, two boxes /iz of detergent, and her key’s /s, and closes /iz the door behind her. She hopes /s she won’t be too late. She arrives /z at the

laundromat, carries /s in all her belongings /z, and searches /s for some empty manchines /z, But they’re all either in user or out of order. She sighs /s, picks /s up everything, and drives /z to the local video store to rent a couple of movies /z.
