Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 99
December 10, 2013
15 Minute Tweet TalesWe had another repeat word this week. On 12/5 the word should have been reify, but we already had it last year on 9/12, so I moved to the next word on the list, which turned out to be kind of gross. But I guess several of them were gross this week with excess sweating, frequent urination, and organs located in the wrong place. Ewww!
 
Then for today’s word we have the lovely chautauqua. When I won the 2009 Highlights Fiction Contest, my prize was to attend the Highlights Writing Workshop at Chautauqua for free. It was such an AMAZING experience, and it’s so weird to think of the word chautauqua as just a regular ol’ noun rather than a specific place. I had a great time and met a lot of amazing people, although none of them were horny, old men. 🙂
 
And now here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week:
 
12/4 – He stalks her with fatiferous intent, never realizing she's only the bait sent to lure in amateurs for the true monster to play with.
 
12/5 – When she sees his diaphoresis in the chilly lab, she screams for help. But it's too late – the virus has escaped to claim another victim.
 
12/6 – The king's xenial feasts lure in noble guests, but they learn not to look at the queen, even if she is playing footsie under the table.
 
12/7 – He grumbles when she exits at another rest stop, but the massive pileup a mile down the road means her micturition saved their lives. #15tt
 
12/8 – "I'm so concerned by your grades, I won't even mention your weight." Her mom's apophasis backfires, and Kim watches TV while snarfing chips.
 
12/9 – He claimed our breakup was so devastating it caused ectopia. I thought it hyperbole until the coroner found his heart on the right side.
 
12/10 – She vacationed at the local chautauqua for mental stimulation, but got a different kind: it was like summer camp with horny, balding men.
 
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?
