Lets do some swifties
« on: February 16, 2019, 08:34:15 AM »
In case you have forgotten swifties were a party game where the modifier or verb had a twist that,described the sentence, but not quite. It's easier to show than describe.
EXAMPLES:
" I sleep in the attic", she said loftily.
"Hurry" he said quickly.
"Nice bed",he said softly
"That's my dog" he muttered.
Got it? Now try a few of your own.

I dropped the toothpaste, he said, crestfallen.

I forgot what I was supposed to buy, he said listlessly.

Hey, there's a book missing from my Bible, he said, ruthlessly.


That's all I got for now.
First of all, get knowledge.

I'm having trouble with my new table saw, Tom said offhandedly.

That's the only one in my memory.

"I live on the other side of the street", she said crossly
"Don't stand up in the boat", he said tipsily
"I'm from Africa", he said darkly.
"I raise pigs",  He grunted.
"I'm in the hurdles race"' he said jumpily."
"You are my honey", She said sweetly.

"Cut down that tree", he barked.
"It's pigeon soup",she cooed.
"What a nice canary" she trilled.
