Twik or Tweet Week 5




Today we play the game a little different…I am making it a bit harder. Most of the tweet I am working with is real. Only one word will be different. You have to figure out if it is a twik or a tweet based on the inaccuracy of only a few words! The accurate tweet is supplied at the end of the post. Good luck! (Normally I do say God bless, but for Twik or Tweet?)

(Good question…didn’t want to play with it)

2)sarahmsalter @makeadiff21 Stirrup pants & leggings were not made for round people (like me). Just sayin'.
(I resemble that remark, so I reworded it…)

I scored pretty well! I guess I've been spending too much time on the Twitter this week!

Thanks for making me smile, Helen... you are so good at that!

sherri said...

Well, I'll never score well, but enjoyed reading your tricks and tweets.

Sarah Salter said...

*giggle* Jason in bunny slippers? *giggle* THAT is priceless!

Rebecca on The Homefront said...

I haven't been on Twitter enough this week to even try...heaven only knows what's a twik and what's a tweet with this crew! ;)

Thanks for the laughs, Helen, you always brighten the mornings for me. :)

Marni said...

That cartoon made me spit my coffee at the screen!!! ;-)

Steph @Red Clay Diaries said...

You are so twikky. I scored pretty well too. Somehow missed the aflac one from Nick.

I also loved the cartoon.

(Which reminds me, I have not yet hat a bowel movement today. I promise to keep you posted.

jasonS said...

I did pretty well too even though I had large chunks of time spent far away from the twitter... Thanks for the smile!

Wendy said...

Okay, my head is still spinning. I shouldn't be subjected to tests like this without the benefit of an entire pot of coffee in me.

You aren't really a wearer of stirrup pants, are you?

Everyone includes Cleveland and Cinncinatti, Helen...
