Back from a soul sucking sabbatical, I'm attending to the backlog of tags. First. Thanks for the tags. Next. In response to my dilly dally response time. Sorry if I'm slow as a three toed sloth getting goofy on two dollar marmalade wine. And. Thus. Let us proceed to the posting. @a.c.nameless tagged me so long ago it's an outright criminal shame that I'm just attending to it. The tag was for a #12wordstory using the prompt #tempestuous ... Now, I gotta say tempestuous threw me for a loop. I couldn't formulate it in a twelve word box to save my biscuits for nothing. I kept overloading the story. Tempestuous had me fucked up in a bad way. The cutting floor had me shredded from the inside out. I went insane. My hair fell out in patchy clumps. My teeth started to chatter. My lips cracked yet sustained a twitchy grin. My eyes squirted blood. Internal organs burst and slid out the basement door with an expulsive splutter, the sick goo running down my legs to puddle and curdle in my sneakers. My toenails spontaneously combusted. My clothes fell to rags. I developed a limp. Along crowded city sidewalks I shuffled with the lope of a leprous hunchback. All the while I breathlessly bemoaned my baneful blockage in a hoarse aberrant whisper: "tempestuous, o' tempestuous!" Able minded citizens would club me with umbrellas and heckle my pained stride. A woman spit on me. A pack of feral chihuahuas took turns humping the game leg I dragged along behind me. An ace piebald pigeon deliberately shat in my good eye. A hysterical gardener attacked me with a weed eater. tempestuous, o' tempestuous. I gimpishly fled to my car. Vamoose! Vamoose! I quickly pulled onto the road. I was directly propelled into a gridlocked snafu. There, in the unmoving car, the tempestuous inspiration struck. I met the criteria! After weeping for a slow thirty minutes (traffic crawling a mere eight feet) I regained my former health, and typed up this (personally) seminal post. And ya know what? It was worth every damn degradation.
