Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 20

Powerful Woman Writer AwardBefore I get to the 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week, I wanted to thank Deirdra Eden for awarding me one of her fantastically pretty homemade awards - the Powerful Woman Writer Award.  It’s very much appreciated!  I just wish I could wave my hands and have my stories magically written!  

Now here are the tweet tales for the week:
 
5/23 – Her life was an argosy of broken promises and shattered dreams that could sail down ‘denial’ and sink in an ocean of despair.
 
5/24 – Broke, but desperate to look great for prom, she employed her sartorial skills. Unlike the movies, her dress was more Vile than Vogue.
 
5/25 – “I thought it was germane to our friendship to tell him I slept with his wife.” “Dude, no. Especially not during your wedding toast.”
 
5/26 – I whisper in her ear, “I’m going to osculate you now.” She puckers her lips, and I smile at how destiny brought together 2 word nerds.
 
5/27 – The vagaries of when she remembered to fix dinner through her alcoholic haze made Tim so adept at cooking he grew into a famous chef.
 

15 Minute Tweet Tales

5/28 – Mortimer was not a paradigm of knighthood, but he still took up one of the fallen swords and defended the king until his last breath.
 
5/29 – She adjured her son not to marry that woman after the PI dug up her past. He refused to listen. A year later he was alone & penniless.
 
The noteworthy word for this week is osculate – what a terrible word for kiss.  Nothing romantic about it at all.  I can’t see that one becoming a word I add to my everyday vocabulary. 
 
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?

Some interesting words and tales...
sartorial - amazing, but the word doesn't sound connected to clothing at all..
osculate - it sounds almost vulgar... aargh, enough to put you off kissing... if somebody said that to me, I would probably punch the guy... hehe!

Yeah, I thought sartorial sounded like it dealt with academics.  And, ha, vulgar is a great way to describe what osculate sounds like it should mean. :-)

I knew most of these words. :)

Congrats on the blog award.

I think I only knew about half of them.  And thanks!!

Osculate, huh? Never would have connected it to a kiss.

I know, it's actually makes me laugh at how opposite it seems from the action of kissing.
