Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 119
May 6, 2014
15 Minute Tweet TalesSince there are sometimes repeats from previous years in the list of ‘rare’ words I use for #15tt, I always search my previous tweet tales to make sure I don’t use a word again (because where’s the challenge in that?). This week turned out to be very interesting. Not only were there two repeat words – abstruse was supposed to be May 1 and bon vivant was supposed to be May 4 – but there were also two words I’d used previously in tweet tales even though they were not the assigned #15tt word: spiel and notorious. I went ahead and used them as #15tt words this week, since they weren't official #15tt words before, but I thought it was interesting that there were so many ‘repeats’ this week.
 
Since the last 15 Minute Tweet Tales post was a Sunday because of the A to Z Challenge, there are a few extra tales this week:
 
4/28 – As the moon obliterates the sun, the people scream. Thinking quickly, the shaman waves his arms. "Behold my power! Now bring me gold!"
 
4/29 – She's notorious for multiple visits to The Maury Povich Show: all those DNA tests yet Maury still hasn't told anyone he's the father.
 
4/30 – The salesman gave his spiel about the environmental benefits of the cleanser, but she was sold when he said it removed all traces of blood.
 
5/1 – No one at work takes her seriously because of her millefleur dresses. Exactly her plan as she passes their secrets to the competition.
 
5/2 – As they creep through air ducts, Jim farts. Not loud enough to alert security, but Bob cachinnates. He still laughs as they're arrested.
 
5/3 – She heard growling on the front porch so used a chair to peer out the lunette. Yellow eyes stared back, too high up to be a normal animal.
 
5/4 – He was a nonpareil doctor, so we were shocked when his wife died from something so easy to fix. Then the cops started asking questions.
 
5/5 – His love for his fiancée was putative reason he stepped in front of the mugger, but he was willing to take a bullet for her dad's money.
 
5/6 – Everything he sees when he walks into the senate validates his decision to let the meteor destroy this planet – no intelligent life to save.
 
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?
