#AtoZchallenge Day 19 – my most fun ‘S’ tongue-twister

This one I found in a novel I read recently – and it took me COMPLETELY by surprise! Any ‘Reiders’ among my Readers may recall a novel Janet used as a prize in a Flash Fiction comp last year (or perhaps in 2016?): ORPHAN X by Greg Hurwitz. Well, imagine my surprise to find the following alliteration, just last week, when I had tongue-twisters on my mind:

Slatcher’s broad fingers scrabbled for purchase across the sleek silicon, sending shotgun shells scattering.

Oh, and if you haven’t read this novel, do so! I found it really rather enjoyable 🙂

And I wonder if you also, liked his impromptu tongue-twister, too?

Have a great day, dear Reader 🙂

#AtoZchallenge Day 18 – my most fun ‘R’ tongue-twister

Well, this one took me a while to create – and much hilarity was had by all those who could hear me puzzle it out! I wonder what *you* think of my attempt…

Rough Wal Wulf and gruff Rolf Wuff roof

… and yes, I was thinking that it’d be good to have a brilliant final word or phrase, but the best I could come up with is ‘wine refineries’ – which added a vowel sound that I didn’t have anywhere else 🙁

Do you have any suggestions, perhaps?

And have a great day, dear Reader 🙂
