In sentences (narrative style!):
Aunt Joan was an Olympic critic to begin with, but her bibulous tendencies made her penchant for complaining even worse. She found fault with everything.
“Those girls look emaciated,” she observed distastefully, frowning at the stars of Pretty Little Liars between glasses of pinot noir. “And what are they wearing? That one,” she said, jabbing a finger in accusation at a girl’s vesture, “What color is that? Vomit? Radiation? I’ve never seen anything so perfectly lurid.”
The girls she was minding looked in exasperation to the ceiling and sidereal elements beyond it, praying that Aunt Joan’s next glass would lull her to sleep.
