2. As we walked up to the door full of holiday greetings, the in-laws opened  it and we were met with the full ensemble, including their not-so-friendly mutt encased in an Elizabethan collar.

3. The only thing keeping her from playing the lotto was her irrational fear of taxes.

4. She opened her eyes in the morning to find that everything in her house had grown 120x and that she was in danger of being crushed by a penny precariously perched on her headboard.
