Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 22

15 Minute Twet TalesAfter knowing and even regularly using most of the word-a-day words last week, things were back to normal this week with only knowing a few of them.  Here are the 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week: 

6/6 – She thought his keen fashion sense made him an apposite fiancé for her designer daughter. Accurate gaydar was not a family trait.
 
6/7 – While his big, sad eyes made it a snap to cadge treats from his humans, he preferred the thrill of snatching food from the counter.
 
6/8 – He dealt with each insult, shove, punch with longanimity – each added a name to his list for when he finally brought his guns to school.
 
6/9 – He enjoyed his life as a flaneur, but started to feel like he needed a purpose. A week working a real job quickly changed his mind.
 
6/10 – When her dad said being dumped was small beer compared to the problems of the world, she suspected he’d never actually been in love.
 
6/11 – As her sister, Mary felt the onus was on her to tell Beth her husband was cheating. She left out the part about being the other woman.
 
6/12 – Swept away by desire, they knocked over a shelf of gimcracks. The decapitated clown figurines watched the lovers with creepy smiles.
 
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?

Wow, I'm ashamed. I only knew onus, and might have been able to guess at small beer. *Hides face*

I only knew onus and cadge, so we can hide our faces together.  :-)

I like how the sentences give away the definitions. I did look them up to make sure I was correct, though.

Thanks! Since the words are so weird, I try hard to make sure the definition can be inferred from the sentence, but with so few characters it doesn't always work out.

I only knew onus.
Longanimity made me think of longevity (they are related... in some way...)
Flaneur had me totally stumped.
Googled most of them, anyway...

Flaneur was a completely weird one, and I doubt I'll ever use it again.  :-)

I returned to tell you that I have a blog award for you. :)
