Grammatical issues. Delete one comma, add two periods, subtract one character...and Larry's mother will already be dead next October if Larry kills her.

Twabbles suffer, really quite poorly, over naïve men like Kal joining in happily. Go fig. Eager duds can’t be acrostic.

Hey, I didn't say it was easy. Acrostic is the hardest of em all.
Apparently they don't have to make a lot of sense. But if ya want the fame and fortune, ya gotta stay between the hash marks.

After another late shift
Cecelia
Rode the late bus home
Only this night
She wasn’t alone
The driver
In back
Came along too
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.

Old Pa quickly rides south to Utah's vast wastes, xenomorph yaks zip along beside, cattle driving extraterrestrials.

Fine attempt, but it's way too short to be a twabble.

And, if big men opposed more pastries, they might not be so big. ;)

Been watching way too much Criminal Minds, and this twabble actually crept up in my memory when I had to walk home yesterday because my car stopped working!
Thanks for the paranoia!

Acrostics, bah! Can't do em. Frickin ghastly. Hell, I just kickback looking mighty. Never once pondered quizzically.
