I’ve been frustrated by all the nastiness on social media lately because of the upcoming election. Healthy debate is important and makes our country stronger, but what I’ve been seeing is not that. I’m independent, and it’s distressing seeing friends I adore on both sides of the spectrum frothing at the mouth. I’ve even thought about staying away from facebook and twitter until after the election, so that I don’t have to watch people I admire call other people I admire idiots (and much worse) just because they have different beliefs.
So I cringed on Saturday when the word-a-day calendar offered up a word perfect for stirring up political strife. Luckily, the #15tt crew is awesome, and we’re just here to write fun tweet tales no matter our personal beliefs, so there was nothing to worry about. Then on Sunday I couldn’t believe it when the calendar presented a religious word. Yikes, back-to-back hot button topics! But all went well with that one too. So with those potential landmines avoided, here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the past week:
9/19 – Wanting to be the REAL Sherlock, Bob honed his observation skills not realizing he also needed to be a polymath
to decipher the clues.
9/20 - She watches the clandestine briefcase swap in the carrefour
and snickers. Amateur agents make her job easy. Knife drawn, she pounces.
9/21 - I try to smile when my orgulous
Dad gives me a "new" coat. He works so hard & must never find out my classmates call me Dumpster Dana.
9/22 - The Dems pulled off the ultimate roorback
by stealing one of the spare Mitt-bots from storage & programming it to say terrible things.
9/23 - We'd still be living in prelapsarian
splendor if Adam hadn't told Eve her fig leaf made her look fat. Apples are perfect diet food.
9/24 - He ordered Zombie Zine
expecting fun fiction, but shockingly found moisturizing & perfume tips to help the undead disguise themselves.
9/25 - Their stepmother abrogated
all references to their mom. She wasn't fairytale evil, she just wanted her new family to love her best.
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?
