Week 22: Shake is open!

In honor of the MULTIPLE instances of shakiness that esteefee and I experienced this week, we thought "shake" might be a fun prompt. Don't feel like you have to limit yourselves to the quakey kind of shake though! It could be someone shaking after a near death experience, or coming off of drugs (voluntary or involuntarily taken), or maybe a Wraith shaking with hunger (do they do that?), or a story about milkshakes (YES!) etc etc! Here are some dictionary definitions to help spur your imagination.
