Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 48

15 Minute Tweet TalesFor the past few weeks, my 15 Minute Tweet Tales posts have been jam-packed with extras, but today it’s ‘just the tweets, ma’am.’ 

12/5 - Primogeniture meant her brother would rule despite his low IQ. She was the clever 1. Clever enough to make his death look accidental.
 
12/6 - Tom didn't need to be a shamus to figure out his wife was cheating on him,but it sure was helpful in framing her lover for her murder.
 
12/7 - Cindy ran to her dad giddy about the ribbons she'd won, but since none were 1st place blue, he treated them as de minimis decorations.
 
12/8 - Kim watched the zombie's lackadaisical progress up to her, then lodged her ax in his head. Tearfully, she whispered, "Goodbye, Daddy."
 
12/9 - The squirrel's cupidity causes the homeowner to remove the bird feeder. The birds retaliate by snatching all the fur from his tail.
 
12/10 - Every morning she listens to his prolix complaints about her shortcomings & imagines the day she stabs him to death. Is today the day?
 
12/11 - "You screwed my brother." "I'd never--” I hold up the diamond girandoles I'd had made for her. "Found these in his bed." She laughs.
 
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?

Shamus and de minimus were new to me. I learned some words here.

Such a great concept. Sadly, though, I'm a bit swamped at the moment to think creatively. :-)

Medeia - Yay, I'm glad I helped add a few additions to your impressive vocabulary.

Misha - It's fun, you should try to write a few when you've got some time.
