Have you ever been nagged to death by an Alaskan water hag? No? Yeah, neither have I. I’m going to guess that they don’t exist… …I feel that this is a safe bet since I just made them up a couple of minutes ago.

Remember to make sure that the scene is grammatically correct, and that it flows well. Again, you might want to give it to a grammar nazi after you finish to make sure that your grammar is solid. Your cue: “Marco, that Alaskan water hag is…”
