This is too much fun!

"My brain spills over with Tom-Swifties," she said brimmingly.

"I'm wondering if we may use poetic license with some of our adverbs?" she said curiously and inventingly.

"I wonder if I should stop (fill in the blank)" she said haltingly.

"I wonder if there is too much of a good thing," she said amply.

"I wish I could stop with this already!" she said ceaselessly.

“Ehgve yerst ‘ed meh tons’ls ehrt,” said Tom glottally.

“Six or seven?” Tom asked confusedly.

“The TV control is on the table,” Tom said remotely.

"That's because you're not Russian." she replied swiftly.

Oh, I hadn't thought of verb AND adverb.
"The law is an honourable profession." she retorted briefly.
