Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 75

15 Minute Tweet TalesI got stuck on the 24th and had a tough time coming up with a tweet tale, so I decided to break out of my usual mold and try a poem again. Not a haiku this time, instead the a-b-a-b rhyming kind I wrote in middle school. I assume there’s a name for it, but I’m feeling too lazy to google it. And as my haiku proved, I’m better off sticking with the prose thing, but it’s fun to play with words in new ways.
 
Here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week:
 
 
6/19 - Swimming as kids. First kiss on the banks. Married on a dock. All her memories of him were potamic. She spread his ashes on the water.
 
6/20 - The young girl idolizes the sprezzatura of the Olympic gymnasts. Ten years later she soars through the air to win gold and inspire others.
 
6/21 - Their pridian antics land them in the principal's office this morning. He longs for the days of the paddle as he lectures them yet again.
 
6/22 - Tim didn't want to be one of Tony's myrmidons, but he helped hold Eugene's head in the toilet, mentally chanting, 'Better him than me.'
 
6/23 - She reported his crimes, sharing enough to keep him in jail for years, but she kept the gravamen to herself: he didn't love her back.
 
6/24 - Emption relieved her stress,
so she did it more and more;
but it left her credit a mess,
so she married a rich bore.
 
6/25 - He cultivates a mithridatism to antifreeze because his wife says it's a perfect murder weapon. When she finally snaps, she uses a gun.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 74

15 Minute Tweet TalesLike the last two weeks, a theme accidentally and then on purpose emerged: teachers behaving badly. I also noticed that the word ‘cloud’ popped up twice. I tried to work ‘cloud’ in again for today’s tale, but the efforts were quite pitiful, so I stopped trying to force it. Here are this week’s 15 Minute Tweet Tales for your perusal.
 
6/12 - As procellous clouds roll in, the tension inside increases. BOOM! Neighbors think it's thunder, but it's the last time he ever hits her.
 
6/13 - Critics slammed his macaronic poetry, but to her it symbolized their bond: 2 people who couldn't understand each other but loved anyway.
 
6/14 - Her procacity intrigued the professor - most students didn't care enough to challenge him - but he failed her to reassert his authority.
 
6/15 - A mephitic cloud moved across the classroom and giggles quickly followed. The kids blamed Stinky Stan. Miss Jones didn't correct them.
 
6/16 - She explains secant lines, but the geometry students play on their phones. She pulls hers out, too. They don't notice and she doesn't care.
 
6/17 - We all previse disaster when Juliet Hatfield and Romeo McCoy fall in love, but they won't listen. The end is bathed in tears and blood.
 
6/18 - Her scoptic acceptance speech was deemed brilliant by many, but despite amazing performances, the Academy ensured she never won again. #15tt

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 73

15 Minute Tweet TalesLast week it was children who didn’t want to go to bed, and this week I apparently had bugs on the brain. On 6/6 and 6/7 my tales accidentally started an insect theme. I didn’t notice the trend until later, but once I did, I decided to finish off the week with entomological tales. Here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week: 
 
6/5 - Dan is dubbed the king of riposte, but he doesn't realize they're laughing at him not with him for replying "yo mama" to any insult.
 
6/6 - The allicient scent of nectar beckons the bee closer. WHAM! The plant's jaws snap shut. One less worker buzzing in the hive tonight.
 
6/7 - An insect flies into his mouth, tickling his fauces. Terrified of bugs, he drinks pesticide to kill it. Another Darwin Award winner.
 
6/8 - A vulpine face stares down at her, half hidden by tree branches. She convinces herself it's a cat. Then it whispers, "Come play with us."
 
6/9 - Tweens adore the pop star. No one suspects messages hidden in his demotic songs. When they reach voting age, he will become President.
 
6/10 - The bee's appetence for fun made her an outcast. She met an ant bored with "all work-no play" policies: they ran off and had adventures.
 
6/11 - As the rasorial birds close in, the cricket hides in a hole. A voice hisses, "S-s-so glad you could s-s-stop by for s-s-super." Uh oh.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 72

15 Minute Tweet TalesApparently I was obsessed with children who didn't want to go to bed this week. The similar theme on 5/30 and 5/31 was actually an accident, but once I noticed the pattern, I decided to go for the trifecta on 6/1. Enjoy the 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week:

5/29 - "How dare you stay out late with your stocious pals?" "Mom, it's only 9:30 and we drank soda." He didn't mention the strippers they hired.

5/30 - Sally crashes the party to sing, but her mom hustles her off to bed. So for her next captation, she toddles in wearing only a diaper.

5/31 - Her petrous heart is not budged even after being bribed with hugs. Bed time is in 5 minutes. Mommy's ready to watch her favorite show.

6/1 - Rather than throw a tantrum, Suzy sweetly asks to hear another story. The Fabian tactic gains her 30 extra minutes before lights out.

6/2 - "How is it?" "Delicious!" he chokes out past the suberous mess in his mouth. He'll never make it as a vegetarian, but he'll try for her.

6/3 - 'Subjects are edacious today,' I scribble in my notes, then push 3 more felons into the lab with the zombies. Screw the cure, this was fun!

6/4 - As the guillotine blade drops, the queen knows her lies about being unfaithful were worth it to keep her fastuous son off the throne.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 71

15 Minute Tweet TalesI hope everyone had a lovely Memorial Day weekend! Mine was pretty low key, mostly spent working on a script due at the end of the month. And as usual with Monday holidays, I'm now completely confused about what day it is and almost forgot to post my 15 Minute Tweet Tales today.

Many of the #15tt folks participate by writing haikus and other poems, so on the 24th I thought I'd give it a try. The #haikuchallenge word for that day was 'oops' so I incorporated it along with the #15tt word. I'll never be accused of being a poet, but it was fun to try something new.

5/22 - When the lurid murders resume, the cops fear they have the wrong man, but it's just an epigone even easier to catch than the original.

5/23 - Mia's satyagraha inspired our revolution. She was butchered at her sit-in, so we tossed her teachings and slaughtered our oppressors.

5/24 - 

Death-predicting cat
Peers beyond caducity
Oops, your time is nigh
 
5/25 - A raiding warrior eloigns a maiden to his village. For ten seconds he lives with the realization that she's a sneakier fighter than him.

5/26 - Too shy to speak, he indites a note asking her out. While flattered, she's repelled by the awful spelling and must check the 'know' box.

5/27 - The dragon's megrims caused her to snack on all the maidens in the kingdom; the dogs were next, but their bones got stuck in her teeth.

5/28 - "Bob, your tmesis is making me crazy." "I have abso-freakin-lutely no idea what you're talking about." Not guilty by reason of insanity?

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 70

15 Minute Tweet TalesLike last week, we had another repeat word this week. On 5/18, according to the lineup in the Rare Words book, the #15tt word should have been apposite, but we already had that one almost a year ago. I guess when companies are picking unusual words for their products, there are only so many to go around. Here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week:

5/15 - The vet's assuasive voice works wonders on pets. Too bad it doesn't have the same effect on women. He had to soundproof the basement.
 
5/16 - Because of her lack of procerity, Sue ignored the cabinets' top shelves. She had no idea a creature had moved in primed to give birth.
 
5/17 - Cuddles hated his owner, but misoneism kept him from running away. Sweaters were bad enough - a new owner might make him wear pants!
 
5/18 - Her brothers' captious questions to her boyfriends always unearthed some annoying trait, so she eloped with this one. Deadly mistake.
 
5/19 - When Bill died, the nimiety of people saying, "he's in a better place," made her skin crawl. He deserved to burn for what he'd done.
 
5/20 - Rex experiences eudemonia. A chip found under the couch. And that's the 24th time he's felt it today. Dogs are much wiser than humans.
 
5/21 - The snail's wife-husband shrieks, "Quit nagging! You're the one who forgot to put the seat down, not me." Monoecious marriage is tough.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 69

15 Minute Tweet TalesLast week I seemed to have doomed space journeys on my mind, and this week it's apparently terrible kings. We also had another repeat of a 15 Minute Tweet Tales word: Antaean was supposed to be the #15tt word on 5/8, but we'd already used it back in October, so I moved on to the next one. Enjoy the tales!

5/8 - At the shelter, the couple is charmed by Rex's mansuetude; but it's a clever doggie trick, since he destroys their house within hours.

5/9 - Thunder on a cloudless day was the first monition something bad was coming, but Tina held her ground until she saw his yellow eyes.

5/10 - Consuetude demanded she bow when the king passed, but she refused. Punishment was swift, but her martyrdom inspired the revolution.

5/11 - A dancing homunculus appears in her dreams. Freud would say she yearns for her own child. Actually, she nodded off watching Ally McBeal.

5/12 - He asks her out, but she tells him she must lucubrate; when he starts sniggering, she's relieved she trusted her instinct to lie.

5/13 - Everyone fears the king's piceous temper. Chef decides the 3-year-old prince will be a better ruler and serves the king a special dish.

5/14 - Em labors to make her protagonist feel real until she can no longer secern fiction from reality. Her true love lives within her novel.

Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 68

15 Minute Tweet TalesNot only did I get used to posting my 15 Minute Tweet Tales on Sunday during the A to Z challenge, but I've also been on a blog break since the challenge ended, so I almost forgot to post my tweet tales today. There are a few more than usual since I'm making the switch from Sunday back to the regularly scheduled Tuesday. Enjoy!

4/29 - "He gave me those same earrings. Said they're gold, but they're clinquant." The words from the woman at her door shatter Meg's world.

4/30 - Edith shrieks when she checks her prize-winning roses and finds sheep eating them. There's no way they made it past the haha. Sabotage!

5/1 - With the launch only minutes away, the Captain had an Apollonian air. It was an act for the crew; he knew they wouldn't make it back.

5/2 - The paludal ground stole her shoe, so she had to dig it out. It would lead the cops to her if they found the body she'd just dumped.

5/3 - The eager faces of the parviscient recruits batter his soul. Bound for the craters of Mars, he's not training them to fight but to die.

5/4 - Lost in desert. Mouth parched. Skin fried. Mirage manifests. Undulant sand dunes turn blue and sound of ocean lulls him to final sleep.

5/5 - With a few tricks Sue convinced her kids she was prescient. Now they're too scared to even think of being naughty. Being a mom is fun!

5/6 - The queen whispers in the king's ear about his louche advisors. Meanwhile, she's screwing half of them and stealing from the treasury.

5/7 - Phil wanted to think deep thoughts, so he built a phrontistery in his garden, but in truth he had all his best ideas in the bathroom.

I didn't do it on purpose, but I guess I had doomed space trips on the brain this past week, since 5/1 and 5/3 seem like they could be part of the same larger story.

Temporarily Tweet Tales Sunday Week 67

15 Minute Tweet TalesFeeling super wiped out from the A to Z Challenge and super glad there are only two more days to go. Whoo hoo! So for one last time, here at my 15 Minute Tweet Tales temporarily transferred to Sunday.

4/22 - Bob believes a spider crawled inside his ear. Worried it'll lay eggs in his brain, he shoves an icepick in the meatus. Problem solved.

4/23 - A joke turns into a food fight turns into punches. Now the whilom friends stare daggers at each other outside the principal's office.

4/24 - It's revealed RHS student council is a kleptocracy and colleges scramble to admit them figuring they'll end up with Congressmen alumni.

4/25 - For two weeks blepharal twitching has impeded sleep. The encroaching madness makes her wonder how much it'd hurt to rip off her eyelids.

4/26 - He unearths a trunk he can pignorate to pay for a hearty meal, but when he lifts the lid, the creature inside has other dinner plans.

4/27 - When her husband accuses her of telling a boldfaced lie, Bev unleashes her sumpsimus side, shrieking,"It's bald, just like your head."

4/28 - The intern's excited about his first day working on The Hill. By quitting time, the entropy he's witnessed makes him fear for the nation.

Temporarily Tweet Tales Sunday Week 66

15 Minute Tweet TalesWeek three of the A to Z challenge has drawn to a close, and I'm starting to feel kind of like a zombie. So I guess it's no surprise that two of my 15 Minute Tweet Tales had a zombie theme. Enjoy!

4/15 - While cooking dinner for her, her fiancé cuts himself and a luteous substance oozes out. Her heart drops as she realizes he's one of them.
 
4/16 - The hegira of woodland creatures means Snow White's singing in the forrest. Charming told her she has a beautiful voice. She does not. #15tt
 
4/17 - All the girls mocked her sthenic legs, but when the outbreak started, the twigs they tottered on were unable to outrun the living dead.
 
4/18 - With slick power point presentations, I cozen corrupt companies out of millions and give 50% to charity. I'm a modern day Robin Hood.
 
4/19 - She has a pistic belief in her daddy. Surrounded by zombies, she knows he won't let them kill her. He won't. His last bullet's for her.
 
4/20 - Tom watched the squirrels perform their gamic dance back and forth across tree limbs with no fear. He sighed. He needed a girlfriend.
 
4/21 - Running is only a cunctation of the ceremony. They catch Kim and make her Jim's 8th wife. No previous has made it to a 1st anniversary.
