Twosday in Bloom

Two prairie anemones in bloom in our front yard two days ago. The green blades are garlic.


Tuesday is rapidly becoming my favorite day. Years ago a psychic fellow told me that Tuesday would “always be my best day” with the message ostensibly coming from my late mother.Whether it did or not is moot, the fact is I get to inflict my latest creations on an innocent world on Tuesdays and that makes me happy.

The rules of the game are put up two sentences that you’ve read and two that you’ve written.

What I read:

Two enlightening sentences about how the heart works from Understanding Electrophysiology Studies from The StayWell Company, copyright 1995, 1999, 2001.
“Too many signals make the heart beat very fast (tachycardia). Or signals may be sent so rapidly and irregularly that the heart muscle sometimes quivers and doesn’t beat at all (fibrillation). (Bolding theirs.)

My two sentences:

“Mrs. Inge Tuckle didn’t pay much attention to the latest upgrades in technology unless it had something to do with her. It rarely did.”

Many, many thanks to the Women of Mystery for the Two Sentence Tuesdays.

Leah, I love the idea of having one day that you cherish as your own, not allowing anything or anyone to ruin it! In the name of creativity or inspiration, it's great to know that at least one day is all yours :)

Rupal, it's all mine, but I'm willing to share.

Fascinating electrics! I love the name Inge Tuckle and her attitude- well, what I assume from two sentences. But as a member of the innocent world, I say inflict upon me some more.

Leah J. Utas said...

Clare, I'm glad you like the name. She's a lot of fun to write.

Reb said...

Oh, I think I will like Inge Tuckle!

Leah J. Utas said...

Reb, I think you will.

Thomma Lyn said...

hehe, love your Twosday -- the two beautiful blossoms and the two sets of two fascinating sentences!

Crystal Phares said...

I love the name of your character. I also like that she doesn't keep up with technology unless it affects her. That's how my world works, too.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thanks, Thomma Lynn. My husband grows the flowers and other interesting plants in our front yard.

Thanks, Crystal. It makes me smile to know that character name is such a hit.

Barbara Martin said...

Leah, you can add me to the list of fans for 'Inge Tuckle'. She seems to be a person I'd really like, one with attitude.

Barbara Martin said...

Leah, by the way, Clare likes to be teased with sentences.

David Cranmer said...

Leah, My kind of lines. Concise yet saying so much.

Leah J. Utas said...

Hello Barbara, thanks. We'll she what she gets up to. Thanks for the tip about Clare.

David, thanks. That's quite a compliment.

Well, goodness me, how did I miss this this morning?????

Love Inge Tuckle (even the name makes me chuckle) and her attitude! And your flowers are so pretty.

Great sentences, cousin.

Leah J. Utas said...

Thank you kindly, Cousin. I wondered what happened. I figured Real Life got in the way.
I'm glad you like them, And I am so pleased her name is popular. I'm tickled silly about it myself.
