The Big River Mix-Up

Ten years ago, Betty was a new secretary at UEC. She worked hard. She woke up  early every morning. At work, she waited on her boss all day long, keeping his files, typing his letters, and bringing him coffee. She usually wrapped up the workday at about 7:30 p.m., and she was totally worn out.

Get the whole story!

 Betty nearly wore herself out working hard at UEC!

This game has some numbers like "one hundred" and "ninety-eight point six" to make it a little easier.  Do you like having the numbers, or would it be better to have only phrasal verbs?

Numbers are good; they make the game a little easier.

I'd prefer having only phrasal verbs.
