Liz hates /s/ doing the laundry. She realizes /iz/ that four weeks /s/ have passed since her last trip to the laundromat. There are piles /z/ of clothes /s/ in the closets /s/, the sheets /s/ and towels /z/ are dirty. She’s /z/ been wearing the same pair of blue jeans /s/ for nine days/z/, and she doesn’t /z/ have any clean socks /s/ or blouses /iz/ left. She thinks /s/ about it while she watches /iz/ one of her favorite TV shows /z/. She wishes /iz/ she didn’t have to do such chores /z/. Then she opens /s/ a book, turns /s/ the pages /iz/, and tries /z/ to study. The phone rings /s/: one of Liz’s /z/ friends /s/ reminds /s/ her about Sally’s /z/ party tomorrow evening. She decides /s/ that its /s/ now or never. She can’t go to the party unless she washes /iz/ one of her new dresses /iz/. She stuffs /s/ all her clothes /s/ into two laundry bags /z/. She stripes /s/ the bed and pulls /z/ the pillowcases /iz/ off the pillows /s/. She goes /z/ through the apartment, picking up everything in sight. Finally, she grabs /s/ some coat hangers /z/, two boxes /iz/ of detergent, and her keys /z/, and closes /z/ the door behind her. She hopes /s/ she won’t be too late. She arrives /s/ at the laundromat, carries /z/ in all her belongings /s/, and searches /iz/ for some empty machines /s/. But they’re all either in use or out of order. She sighs /z/, picks up /s/ everything.
