Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 29

15 Minute Tweet TalesI’m not exactly sure what happened to trigger it, but last week a bunch of new people started playing 15 Minute Tweet Tales over on Twitter using the hashtag #15tt.  Welcome to all the new players!  It’s been fun having the chance to see so many different takes on the word-a-day prompt.  We even have a few people writing micro-poetry, which is very impressive.  And if you’re on Twitter and not playing yet, what are you waiting for?  Jump in and tweet us a tale! And make sure to check out the #15tt hashtag each day for other tales because I only feel comfortable posting my own in the weekly roundup.  Speaking of… here they are:

7/25 - At her first singles’ night, Barb wonders if she was festinate in dumping Tim – extreme flatulence doesn’t seem so bad in comparison.
 
7/26 - Viv remembered when her mom’s hugs eased all bumps & scrapes, but she wished for a true nepenthe as she stood at her husband’s grave.
 
7/27 - She was adroit at manipulating people, and her morals were dark enough to exploit the skill, yet light enough to feel bad about it.
 
7/28 - They had a magical 1st date. Then he sent the text 'Thanx for a grate nite.' Orthography ran in Nan Webster's blood, so she dumped him.
 
7/29 - The rich scofflaw's lawyers always freed him, so the cop mislabeled him as a pedophile & tossed him in gen pop to teach him a lesson. 
 
7/30 - BIGFOOT SIGHTING FOOTLESS AS FOOTPRINT PROVEN FAKE! The Sasquatch smiled at the newspaper, satisfied his ruse had made it safe again.
 
7/31 - When preschool reported her son was a paladin revolting nap time, she felt he'd grow up to be President or a criminal. Turns out both.
 
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?

So many unfamiliar words today... thought I'd have some fun, so here's my interpretation (before I click on the links) LOL!
festinate - an oozing festering wound that refuses to heal
scofflaw - making a mockery of the legal system
paladin - a collective noise made by a group of pals

I played a board game in high school (I think it was called Balderdash) where we were supposed to make up definitions for big words and fool people into thinking they were real. Yes, I've always been a sword nerd!

I've come across all these words before, but forgot about them. This is a great refresher.

Yeah, as I get the new word each day, it's surprising how many words I've forgotten I knew.
