As our plane plummeted I asked a stranger, "What is your fondest memory?" She said, "Just now, when you touched my hand."

Four of the subjects died only a few days after being exposed to the virus. The last was immune, so I had to kill him myself.

Ha! The stars lined up for me...free time to write some twabbles and finding myself caught in the middle of a mood swing.

Alison screamed and ran out of the restaurant. In retrospect, I guess I should've taken the finger out of the ring first.

We were all deciding who we should eat first when the rescuers arrived, now there is no one who can fly the helicopter out.

Funny! I suggest either a period or a semi-colon there in the middle, though. Needs a longer breath/break.

Boo! Hiss! :D

PS: I would have thought this was a good, old joke. But I can't find any evidence of this joke, or variants, on the innerwebz (so far). So congrats.

Yes, Grammar Nazi insists that that must be a period or semi-colon (¿or else YOU get the semicolon -- without anesthetic?).

Other than that, a fine debut twabble.

Nice. So many people don't utilize the semicolon's double meaning. It's nice to see it put to use once and a while.

I don't understand. Why are you calling the international symbol for "wink" a semicolon?

A dyslexic walks into a bra,
and then he laughs, "Ah ah."
But we surround him
and we do pound him
for the bra was on my dear Ma.

yeah, clever.

especially line two. combining 100 characters in a limerick had to be tricky. (Sorry, but there is not a Nobel Prize for accomplishing this feat, nonetheless I am impressed.)
