Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 17

15 Minute Tweet TalesAfter the insanity of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, we’re back on track this week with the 15 Minute Tweet Tales roundup returning their regularly scheduled Tuesdays.  This post has two bonus tweet tales to accommodate the shift from Sunday back to Tuesday.  Enjoy!

4/30 – A fleer briefly flitted across her face as he chewed with his mouth open. Why couldn’t her friends have better taste in blind dates?
 
5/1 – His conciliatory body language contradicted the intense speech he delivered about why he shouldn’t have to put down the toilet seat.
 
5/2 – Hips too wide, skin too pocked, the casting director sighs when she walks in the room. But when she speaks, her duende is undeniable.
 
5/3 – With ironic synchronicity, the wife poisoned her husband the same night he shot her. And they’d seemed like such a loving couple.
 
5/4 – He vowed to live by ahimsa & believed plants were living beings too; although starving to death was the ultimate betrayal of that vow.
 
5/5 – Tim told the auto-barber he’d dye for a new hair color, but robots don’t understand paronomasia, so he’s buried with blood-red hair.
 
5/6 – Sue tried to convince her doctor to subtract a tare of 20 lbs. since her skin’s a container whose weight shouldn’t count against her.
 
5/7 – She hated when she had to substitute at the Wizardry School. Giving children magic wands made their flapdoodle even more tiresome. 
 
5/8 – Magic is wielded by the distaff line, but only men can claim the throne. The hermaphrodite became the most powerful ruler in history.
 
I was a big fan of two of the words this week: duende - both because of what it means and how it feels in your mouth when you say it, and flapdoodle – because it’s FUN!
 
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?
