My tweet-length short stories from twitter, following the #TS30 tag which had the theme of  'an infection, an interminable conflict, a flash.'

* The old doctor mastered the art of picking early signs of STDs in the internet porn he consumed, till he went blind from neurosyphilis

* their love flowed like rice-water diarrhea; their silence froze like cold war; their unnoticed end too flashy for a public display.

* Ironically, it was the driest of their make up kisses that gave her Mono; their damper osculations, rife with conflict, had been safe.
