In a Nutshell




He rarely hesitates when one dash of neglect will make her jealous.




The 17-syllable sentence above is an American Sentence. An interesting exercise.

The image was created in Adobe Photoshop with Bamboo Fun.

Thanks to ThomG at 3 Word Wednesday for the prompt words of hesitate, neglect and jealous...
