Run run, as fast as you can; you can’t catch me I’m The Sourdough Man! What? Oh... In that case run as slow as you can please.

OK, maybe this is cheating a little because the title gives it context, but I'm too hungry to think clearly.

Hello,
I am fairly new to The Drabblecast and am still figuring out the details of the postings. A few days ago I posted a couple Twabbles which seem to have disappeared shortly after they went up. I used Word's word count and had them at 100 characters (no spaces) and also ran them through the tool on this website which scored them as "perfect length". I'm just wondering where they went and if I screwed something up in the posting process.

Thank you for any help!

They seemed to have shown up again in a different spot on the site than I left them. I'm not entirely sure how the twitter thing works I guess.

Read the post, "*** Read This Before Posting ***", especially item 3.

You posted twabbles in the wrong place and they were moved to this thread. No other issues. Post twabbles in this thread and you're doing fine.

Airplane? Is there another kind of plane? I propose skyboat makes more sense. No? Fine. You always have to be Mr. Wright.

Nice guns.

I saw Gloria's glorious guns the other day. They were big, but not so big they didn't fit in her hands. I think one was a 9mm.

It's been a while since I visited the forums. Hopefully this one (or something like it) hasn't been done already...

“It’s what you do with it that counts.” But, one look at his twabble convinced her. A double entendre’s size does matter.

Hello there! :)

I stared in horror at my shoe; the nameless gob of flesh and oozing dread ichor that clung to my finger also abased my sole.

He held my severed foot up for me to see before slamming it down on the table. "There," he said. "You think it's level now?"

Deep in the Everglades, graveyard for secrets and sins, an outboard motor rumbles a funeral dirge, late into the night.
