Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 123

15 Minute Tweet TalesI’m all wrapped up in trying to finish my short screenplay before a contest deadline, so I almost forgot today is Tuesday. So here they are - my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week:
 
5/28 – When she sees the tabloid cover with her kids at school, she sprints to nearest person with paparazzi accoutrements and smashes his camera.
 
5/29 - She probably thinks her vacuous head tilt is adorable, but it makes him want to smack her. His dad really dumped his mom for this bimbo?
 
5/30 - She says she eschews trendy clothes cause the companies destroy the environment;truthfully her mom works two jobs just to put food on table.
 
5/31 - His outbursts are furious but fugacious, so she convinces herself his temper isn't that bad. A trip to the ER helps her see the truth.
 
6/1 - "What a space cadet!" snarks cashier about lady who left her wallet, as he stands there with his zipper down and toilet paper on his shoe.
 
6/2 - Suzy spent days training Rex to leave the chickens alone, but at first sign of recidivism, Dad took him out back. Suzy cried at the gunshot.
 
6/3 - Kicking each other while trying to sleep in the back of the station wagon, it was hard to remember the halcyon days before Dad lost his job.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 122

15 Minute Tweet TalesI hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Mine was tons of fun. There was the meteor shower that was mostly a dud except for a few really spectacular streaks across the sky. There was swimming with the dogs. There was cruising around the lake. There was even harvesting honey and making lip balm out of beeswax. Pretty great weekend! If I have time, I might write a few longer posts about some of the events, but I’m working on short screenplay with a deadline just around the corner, so it’s iffy. Meanwhile, here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales from the past week to keep you entertained: 
 
5/21 - He hands the boniface cash, and she nods toward man at the bar. He slips a knife between the senator's ribs and disappears before he falls.
 
5/22 - He's proficient at making fart sounds, entertaining classmates for years, but when it's time for prom, no one wants to go with farty mouth.
 
5/23 - Her sister loves the zoo, so her parents don't get why Sue cries, since they don't believe the souls of the menagerie beg her to free them.
 
5/24 - The damask she picks for the curtains is supposed to brighten the room, but the color reminds them of the tragedy that happened there.
 
5/25 – The troubadour wrote a song that made the depressed princess smile. But her dad was the butt of the joke, so the musician lost his head.
 
5/26 - A chill pervades her body, paralyzing her limbs, so when the shadow reaches for her from the darkness, all she can do is scream.
 
5/27 - During Parade of Nations, folks mocked jerkwater country that had never competed, but thanks to secret native fruit, they won all the golds.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 121

15 Minute Tweet TalesAnother short and sweet post this week – enjoy my 15 Minute Tweet Tales
 
5/14 - The creature skulks through the night searching for prey. Her victim's cries echo through the darkness. Everyone fears they might be next.
 
5/15 Best friends for years, but today she feels a frisson of desire when he looks at her. Should she risk it all to perhaps gain everything?
 
5/16 - The boys discussed their heist in argot, but find out their code's easy to break and to never cross a Girl Scout delivering her cookies.
 
5/17 - The principal said not to maffick during graduation, but the school had low verbal SAT scores, so the students acted a bit crazy anyway.
 
5/18 - Tears fall as she reads in the town’s weekly gazette that he’s engaged. She’d been so sure he would apologize. Pride is a lonely companion.
 
5/19 - His mother-in-law vouchsafes to visit their new house but sneers at everything. He just smiles since he hacked her savings to buy it.
 
5/20 - While awake, she remembers he's gone; while dreaming, she watches him die. So she lives for her hypnagogic state, when he whispers to her.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 120

15 Minute Tweet TalesSince I already did a post today featuring awesome friends and their awesome books, just a short post for my 15 Minute Tweet Tales:
 
5/7 - The mouse steals the chunk of cheese from the trap and gobbles it, but his satiety keeps him from sensing the cat sneaking up behind...
 
5/8 - The torrid atmosphere in the kitchen causes sweat to roll into her cleavage. She catches him watching. It doesn't help cool things down.
 
5/9 - The people were agog at the chance to get a glimpse of their emperor. Shock rippled through the crowd when they realized he was naked.
 
5/10 - She complains when her tranche of the ransom money is so small, but they argue it’s not hard sitting around pretending to be kidnapped.
 
5/11 - He climbed the fence and threw burgers to pacify the dogs, but was shocked by a voice squawking, “Intruder!” Sent to the pokey by a parrot.
 
5/12 - The recalcitrant apprentice always ignored the wizard's rules, so the wizard ignored his pleas for help when the dark spell backfired.
 
5/13 - She takes umbrage at being hidden in back row of chorus, not realizing if her dad wasn't the principal, she wouldn't be on stage at all.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 119

15 Minute Tweet TalesSince there are sometimes repeats from previous years in the list of ‘rare’ words I use for #15tt, I always search my previous tweet tales to make sure I don’t use a word again (because where’s the challenge in that?). This week turned out to be very interesting. Not only were there two repeat words – abstruse was supposed to be May 1 and bon vivant was supposed to be May 4 – but there were also two words I’d used previously in tweet tales even though they were not the assigned #15tt word: spiel and notorious. I went ahead and used them as #15tt words this week, since they weren't official #15tt words before, but I thought it was interesting that there were so many ‘repeats’ this week.
 
Since the last 15 Minute Tweet Tales post was a Sunday because of the A to Z Challenge, there are a few extra tales this week:
 
4/28 - As the moon obliterates the sun, the people scream. Thinking quickly, the shaman waves his arms. "Behold my power! Now bring me gold!"
 
4/29 - She's notorious for multiple visits to The Maury Povich Show: all those DNA tests yet Maury still hasn't told anyone he's the father.
 
4/30 - The salesman gave his spiel about the environmental benefits of the cleanser, but she was sold when he said it removed all traces of blood.
 
5/1 - No one at work takes her seriously because of her millefleur dresses. Exactly her plan as she passes their secrets to the competition.
 
5/2 - As they creep through air ducts, Jim farts. Not loud enough to alert security, but Bob cachinnates. He still laughs as they're arrested.
 
5/3 - She heard growling on the front porch so used a chair to peer out the lunette. Yellow eyes stared back, too high up to be a normal animal.
 
5/4 - He was a nonpareil doctor, so we were shocked when his wife died from something so easy to fix. Then the cops started asking questions.
 
5/5 - His love for his fiancée was putative reason he stepped in front of the mugger, but he was willing to take a bullet for her dad's money.
 
5/6 - Everything he sees when he walks into the senate validates his decision to let the meteor destroy this planet - no intelligent life to save.

15 Minute Tweet TalesIt’s the day off from the A to Z challenge, so here’s a quick post of my 15 Minute Tweet Tales:
 
4/21 - Her foster family did not warn her of her origin, a decision they regret when her half-joking malediction turns their son into a toad.
 
4/22 - The adult dog pees on the floor and smirks at the puppy. The pup knows she'll get blamed again. She must find a way to vindicate herself.
 
4/23 - They held hands and giggled as they walked along the alameda, but their ardent whispers held secrets that would bring down a government.
 
4/24 - I want to vomit as Mom kowtows to the neighbors, but she must keep them happy. If they find out what's inside our house, people will die.
 
4/25 - He saw mom and fiancée exchange sly smiles when he returned with hair cut short. Realized they'd been in cahoots to cause gum accident.
 
4/26 - His unabashed love of unicorns earns many beatings from school bully. Small suspect pool when bully found impaled with unicorn figurine.
 
4/27 - He wished on a shooting star, but when he woke up, he started screaming. He wanted to fly like Superman, not grow a freaky patagium.

15 Minute Tweet TalesHere’s another quick 15 Minute Tweet Tales post on the day off from the A to Z Challenge:

4/19 - The meeting prattle hits stupidity threshold and she shouts, "You're all fired for being idiots!" Her boss calls security to escort her out.
 
4/20 - My normally gregarious child screamed when placed on the Easter Bunny's lap. Then I had to write a check for Bunny's dry-cleaning bill.

15 Minute Tweet TalesWith all the craziness of the A to Z Challenge, just a quick post of my 15 Minute Tweet Tales today:
 
4/7 - Tom's loquacious Nana chases his girlfriends away with humiliating stories of his youth. A pillow and some pressure solve that problem.
 
4/8 - I'm going to be a star!! I'm a Broadway hyphenate, ya know. My parents are always telling me I'm amazing at acting, singing and dancing.
 
4/9 - Back screaming from working two jobs, the lenitive hugs of her kids remind her it's all worth it. Though she wouldn't say no to a vacation.
 
4/10 - Even when my sis showed me pictures, I didn't believe her picaresque tales of traveling with smitten men. Then Juan showed up at our door.

Temporarily Tweet Tales Sunday Week 115

15 Minute Tweet TalesLike I’ve done the past two years of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m temporarily moving my regularly scheduled 15 Minute Tweet Tales posts from Tuesday to Sunday. Since I didn’t do a tweet tales post earlier this week, there are more than usual. Enjoy!
 
3/26 - The food's awful, but she gets hebdomadal lunch: she never gave waiter the chance to call her Mom, but recognized her blue eyes in his face.
 
3/27 - When she caught husband cheating, her knee-jerk reaction was to grab her shotgun, but she came up with a better murder scheme to avoid jail.
 
3/28 - With a sneer, she flicks his epaulet representing courage in battle. She knows it was bought with the blood of his men rather than earned.
 
3/29 - Tim cries at zoomorphic costumes. "Told ya he's too young," hisses Dad. "Told ya you're an ass!" screams Mom, giving audience a second show.
 
3/30 - The atavism in Jon alarms his mom. Magic had been eliminated from their people, primarily by killing those who had it. She must hide him.
 
3/31 - He writes books mocking those who believe in aliens, so he's upset he'll have to resile. Least of his worries once the probing starts.
 
4/1 - After her devious explanation of why she missed curfew lasted 20 minutes, her dad couldn't figure out if she should be punished or not.
 
4/2 - "When I gaze in your eyes, I know you grok me. Our wedding will be beautiful. Now, do you promise not to scream when I take off the gag?"
 
4/3 - Cleaning Nana's attic he finds an incunabulum. Believing it dusty junk, he tosses it...along with the fortune he'd work so hard to inherit.
 
4/4 - Sue's ready for her efflorescence from geeky girl to hot woman, but no one wants to give her a makeover in a montage set to pop music.
 
4/5 - Although the cockalorum annoys us by lamenting about his Ferrari being in the shop, when the bus arrives, he lacks money for the fare.
 
4/6 - Her boss carps at her, not knowing her husband just died. Her boss also doesn't know he died because he constantly criticized her.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 114

15 Minute Tweet TalesSince I’m spending the day on Twitter obsessing over the #PidMad hashtag, today’s 15 Minute Tweet Tales post is a quick one: 
 
3/19 - She sings with élan but no talent; the audience cringes but Dad beams. He always says: if you can't do it well, do it enthusiastically.
 
3/20 - He blames his heinous acts on ‘following orders’ but it’s actually a convenient way to execute the dark ideas burrowing in his brain.
 
3/21 - He’s a tub-thumper about health and moral benefits of veganism, but bacon sings to him. He even keeps pieces in his desk for pick-me-ups.
 
3/22 - She oppugns the bishop's saintly reputation, so people call her a liar, but she remembers the feel of his hands on her while she cried.
 
3/23 - He’s a pippin of the art world. Even after revealing his paintings are pranks created by rolling his dog in paint, they laud his vision.
 
3/24 - Tired of his daughters’ fighting, he uses duct tape to demarcate their room into halves. But it’s not a magic wall, so the battles rage on.
 
3/25 - She panicked at the multitudinous faces jeering at her as they led her to the gallows, but calmed when she saw him. He’d make them pay.
