She sat on the edge of the bed and yawned, putting her hand to her forehead. "I've sure got a head on me," she remarked. Janet was silent, angrier than ever, shocked that tragedy, degradation, could be accepted thus circumstantially. Lise proceeded to put up her hair. She seemed to be mistress of herself; only tired, gaping frequently.
There's a fight in the streets, called one of the damsels down the stairs, at the highest pitch of her voice. 'I shan't go, yawned a huge fellow, who was lying on his back on a sofa. 'Oh come up, my hero, said one of the girls. 'Such a charming riot, and the Prefect himself in the middle of it! We have not had such a one in the street this month.
"Oh! ah what was it you asked?" Foster yawned aloud. "I musta been asleep." "I guess you musta been, all right," Bud grunted. "Do you want breakfast here, or don't you? I've got to stop for gas and oil; that's what I was asking?" The two consulted together, and finally told Bud to stop at the first garage and get his oil and gas.
Rosalind had yawned softly and largely behind her as she went down the front steps. Wicked, monstrous creature!

The dignity of his breed forbade man-handling, and at a safe distance he stretched himself nervously and yawned. Jimmie stepped to the railing of the veranda, raised his foot to a cleat of the awning, and swung himself sprawling upon the veranda roof.
