Potentially fun, but that's way too short to be a twabble. :(

Alright, take two:

My fiance's feline perched on my chest. It stared at me then swallowed. I reacted in vain. It was gone. I was speechless."

The van was hot and the passenger seat smelled funny,
but I had it better than the pony stuck in the back with all the candy.

Dane's pulse raced. Adrenaline rushed. Sweat beaded down his brow. He mustered the nerve to answer her: "Curly fries."

Ah, another waitress with a Justin Bieber button on her vest... It has that affect on most of us. I admire Dane's suppression of the Urge to Kill. :wink:

that's interesting. what he meant for it to be was that moment of panic in line at a fast food place when suddenly you can't decide (or haven't already decided) what you want. "Regular or curly fries?" :arrow: panic. But I knew all that so I totally see what you mean. anyway, it's his first one. I'll tell him and maybe his next one will be better?

Nice twist. I think the rythmn would be better with an ellipsis rather than a second sentence:
My wife's star sign was Cancer" Simon said sadly, "so it was really very ironic how she died...
attacked by a giant crab."

this one, admittedly, is pretty niche. you may require google

Stan, you read the new paper by Vladimir Arnold? It was a little disorienting, but he said it practically writed itself.

I once had a spot named Dog. This was not whimsy but tendency to Spoonerism and the persistent pillar of fire found there.

I was strolling in the park this morning when I saw a guy picking up dog shit.
Then I noticed he didn't have a dog... or a bag.
