Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 44

15 Minute Tweet TalesI think my first tweet tale for this week was triggered by my frustration at already seeing Christmas stuff everywhere. I love Christmas, I really, really do, but I don’t need it in my face for over two months. I went clothes shopping (which I hate to do under the best of circumstances), and one store was blasting carols the entire time. I seriously felt like shrinking into a corner, hands clenched over my ears, rocking back and forth, and wailing, “Make it stop! Make it stop!” *ahem* Sooooo anyway, here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the past week: 

11/7 - Her decorous holiday decorations made her the envy of the town, but this year her son snuck a mooning-Santa figurine into the manger.
 
11/8 - Years of bleaching left her with frazzled locks, triggering an animus of natural blondes. Sneaking up behind them, she'd cut off chunks.
 
11/9 - He confers with his consigliere, "Once for yes, twice for no." The poodle barks once; now he's the proud owner of swampland in Florida.
 
11/10 - He peruses the menu, then orders: early 20s, female, redhead. As she screams, he realizes although this is easier, the thrill is gone.
 
11/11 - The bees overthrew the queen, but the new system ended up a kakistocracy because all the competent workers were too busy to govern.
 
11/12 - The prom queen regrets her ignoble treatment of her classmates: pig's blood would've been preferable to the cow shit they dump on her.
 
11/13 - His trenchant wit made him a trendy guest till he flayed too many hosts with his sharp tongue; now his pithy barbs are wasted on the dog.
 
Are you already filled with Holiday spirit? Or are you sick of the Season before we’ve even reached December? 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?

This is so funny... We just went out for dinner last night and right as the waitress asked "Whadya want?" Neil Diamonds "A Cherry Cherry Christmas," began I almost had to pass on dinner!

It just gets more and more ridiculous every year.  In some places I saw Christmas decorations up before Halloween.  It's just silly.

Good thing you limit yourself to 15 minutes for each tweet. I can see how you'd be drawn back to fiddling and tweaking them otherwise. Lots of fun!

Yep, I have to fight myself to not constantly tweak the tweets.  :-)

I don't recall seeing too many Christmas things this week, except for a few people putting their decorations out to get ready. It's the songs that get to me. I enjoy them at first until they're replayed like crazy.

Yeah, I can only listen to so many cheery bells jingling before I go a little batty!
