The following was written by only selecting words from iOS’s predictive keyboard. It is oddly provocative. Enjoy.
- It was the best of the day before I get a follow back.
- The fact I can see it as an excuse for the next few weeks.

- I don’t think that it would be nice to see you at the end of the best way to get a job.
