Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

I would give anything not to be surrounded by annoying couples all the time! Not all couples behave like this, but I consider the ones that I'm talking about (like) the most infuriating humans on the planet! There's the awkward French-kissing in public that always occurs when I'm trying to eat, of course! And the goodbyes that never end on the phone, when it looks like no one is ever going to hang up... Give me the phone, I'll save everyone time, thank you! But what I hate the most, (it) is when they tell you, with bottomless pity in their voices, that "you'll see, one day, you too will find someone"... Grrr!

Getting that for you now...
