the brunette chronicles, ladies only. chapter 138: advanced afternoon accommodations. aka unprotected aims. not a chapter to fuel dramatics of more than usual brunette instinct entertainment enjoyment and enlightenment, as their feeding demands schedules and routines leave majority satiated until supper i.e. not generally hunting and humping for their horny habits plans ploys plots and pleasures to be met with messy mating and greedy grunting again until sundown, altho certainly some are.

writting summaries you must not include:specific details,dates or figures unless essential a summarie must be concise, not wordy(not descriptive) a summerie should mantain a good paragraph structeure (topic sentence,supporting sentence,cocluding sentences) In a topic sentence you should identify:the author,title,speaker, of the original material in you topic sentences. topic sentences are the main point supporting sentences Always try to follow the order of information is presented in the orginal material always paraphrase no do direct information be objective do not give you opinion

SUMMARY 1. Be clear and give only the main points. 2. Be brief and concise. 3. Maintain a good paragraph structure. I. Topic sentences. II. Supporting sentences. 4. Paraphrase. 5. Be objective.
