Here is mine: "The phone company doesn't have certain when the new directories can be ready."

Now another sentence to everyone rewrite:

He hadn't had gone home although he have been getting sick


See you.


You can't say "doesn't have certain."

"The phone company does not know when it will have the new directories ready."
"The phone company does not know when it will prepare the new directories." (a shorter version). not equivalent
"The phone company does not know when it will have the new directories available."

"He hadn't had gone home although he have been getting sick."

"He didn't go home, although he started feeling sick." (best version)
He didn't go home although he had been getting sick. (correcting the verb tenses)
New writing challenge.

Mary Ziller, thank you for pointing out our mistakes.

Next challenge. Originally the writing challenge or word game precluded the use of auxiliary verbs, meaning you should rewrite it without "musts," "coulds," "shoulds," "cans," mights," "haves + verb," "is's + verb," "oughts," or any other extant auxiliary. But I dropped it altogether; on a more lax approach, you can use any of these to conveniently or better rewrite a sentence.

"The game must go on."
