This week was crazy with repeat words from last year. Not only were there three of them, but there was some Halloween-worthy spookiness with two of them. On 10/9, the next word up to bat in the Rare Words
book was supposed to be solipsism
, but we’d already had it at the start of this tweet tale adventure waaay back in week 3
. So as I usually do with repeats, I moved on to the next word in the book – it was solecism
. Not only was it another a repeat word, but it was also
in week 3 and was the word of the day before solipsism. *cue Twilight Zone music* I think it’s odd that two different providers of unusual words presented these two words back-to-back, albeit in a different order. Luckily when another repeat word showed up for 10/11 (sedulous
) it was from week 39
, so I didn’t have to get too weirded out by it.
10/9 - The brumal
weather outside's considerably warmer than the chill in the bedroom. She's found him dancing in a lacy thong. It isn't hers.
10/10 - Bill's doxastic
research made him a top election advisor, but he was paralyzed when it was time to tell his son the truth about Santa.
10/11 - Ron gets jumpy when the temperature rises: he loves the skin displayed by estival
outfits, but fears his wife's punishment for looking.
10/12 - The school nurse diagnoses pica
, but he only eats weird things because it hurts less to be called a freak for stuff he does on purpose.
10/13 - The ducklings mourn their father: coming home after one too many quack-tails at the local watering hole, he crashed into an empennage
10/14 - Wanted new haircut for first day of job but pileated
result made her cry. Upside? Boss thinks she's edgy and gives Em her own trend column.
10/15 - Locked in her room, Suzy uses the hamate
end of a coat hanger to pick the lock. What she finds downstairs changes her life forever.
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 or #15tt words?
