Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 177

15 Minute Tweet TalesWell, summer has finally struck with a vengeance! It’s currently 98 degrees and the heat index is 105. I knew all my complaining about the extra long and cold winter was going to come back and bite me in the butt. Going outside just feels nasty, so it looks like I will be even more of a homebody than usual.
 
And now for my 15 Minute Tweet Tales:
 
6/10 - When son came home from college she thought would plotz: first from joy at having him back, then from shock at seeing 5 rings in his face.
 
6/11 - She reads horrid brother's bestselling novel. Shrieks. It's actually a roman à clef of their childhood with him reframed as the hero.
 
6/12 - Angry, she packs a bag, then schleps it all over town not knowing where to go. Tired, she sits. Dad's been trailing her. Carries her home.
 
6/13 - "Nuh uh, you're stupid!" he says. "Touché," she replies, rolling her eyes, aware he doesn't know what it means or that it's sarcasm.
 
6/14 - "You're so contrary, if I said my grass is green, you'd say it is blue." "Au contraire, due to lack of rain, I'd say your grass is brown."
 
6/15 - At the start of the truce talk, he gave up his gun to prove his bona fides. He only escaped alive because he kept a pistol in his boot.
 
6/16 - The cognoscenti call his paintings raw and emotional. He laughs, tosses paint on a canvas, and has his toddler wriggle around on it.
 
Play along and write tweet tales for the above words. If you’re willing to share, post them on twitter with the hashtag #15tt or add them below in the comments because I’d love to read them. Any thoughts about this week's tweet tales or #15tt words?

It is weird how it's been cold and then so hot. You've got me scared with #1 since I have a daughter going to college in the fall.

Sorry you're so hot. Be glad you don't live in Egypt. 115 practically every day here. Yes, I'm hiding in the A/C.

I loved 6/14 & 6/15, and 6/16 really cracked me up!!

Suggestion:
6/10 - When son came home from college she thought would plotz: first from joy at having him back, then from shock at seeing 5 rings in his face.

Instead of ommiting the second "she" make it "she thought she'd plotz;"
