"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.

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

"Once a Scot, always a Scot," said Tom clandestinely.
