As some of you may know, I’m from Charleston. Well, technically I’m from Summerville, which is 25 miles away, but when talking to anyone outside of South Carolina, it’s easier to say I’m from Charleston. So I felt like I should say something before launching into my usual tweet tales, but I don’t have the words. Instead, I’m going to post the pictures of the victims, since they are the ones we should be thinking and talking about rather than the coward who killed them.
I’ll also mention how proud I am of my city for coming together. The pictures from the Unity Chain
on Sunday evening still give me chills.
And even though it feels silly to post them in light of everything else, here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales
for the past week:
6/17 - She spent years working the con, determined to live the dolce vita
, but then committed the ultimate sin: she fell in love with her mark.
6/18 - "Entre nous
, I think Tom is cheating on Pam." "No way!" Ivy exclaims with feigned shock, having left Tom's hotel room a few hours ago.
6/19 - At the dentist, she thumbs through a tabloid faute de mieux
and sees own face staring back at her. A long lost twin or something creepier?
6/20 - She named her blog Glasnost
but friends didn't realize how honest she'd be. Some had secrets they'd kill for. So which one of them did?
6/21 - The thief's punch renders him hors de combat
. His wife knocks the guy out with her purse. He'll never tease her about its heftiness again.
6/22 - For 12 years, whenever he passed old Ms. Lee's, she'd wave from her window. On the day she's not in situ
, he calls 911 with a heavy heart.
6/23 - Wanting to confer during truce talks, they switch from the lingua franca
to their village's dialect, not realizing the enemy learned 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?
