Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 86
September 10, 2013
15 Minute Tweet TalesThis week we had another repeat word – on 9/9 the word was supposed to be antonomasia, but we already had it back in April of last year. The definition is a memorable one, but I never would have been able to pluck the word itself out of my brain. In fact, I’m not sure that many of these crazy words are sticking around to improve my vocabulary!
 
But here we go, on to my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the past week: 
 
9/4 – The threnody for Father starts, and I pretend to cry. People already whisper about the fortune I'm inheriting – don't want them to suspect.
 
9/5 – Walking on the beach, she finds a muricate sphere and picks it up. It pricks her. The life-form rejoices. It's waited millennia for this.
 
9/6 "We like pie 'round here, 'specially pecan." The actor used aphesis to try to sound southern, but lacked the lyrical flow of a native.
 
9/7 – Romantic date at beach. Urticated by jellyfish. Tells him pee cure is old wives' tale. He does it anyway, a bit too excited. Break up.
 
9/8 – The baby shrieks, but defeating the level boss is his exigent concern. Wife comes home. His punishment? Four months of poopy diaper duty.
 
9/9 – The kids snigger at their dad's trophic lectures. No one wants eating advice from a man who looks like he's due to deliver any day now.
 
9/10 – The fuliginous cat runs through the den leaving a trail of ash. "Whose cat is that?" "I don't know." "How'd it get in?" "The chimney?"
 
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?
