This week's letter, Q, led me on a very merry chase. I thought about quizzes (finding out that I am most like Chandler Bing and/or Phoebe Buffet, characters in the FRIENDS, television franchise. Or, I most closely match Elinor in Sense and Sensibility while doing quizzes here and there). Then, I thought about quotes. Most of my favorite quotes are little blurbs of wit and wisdom uttered by the likes of Dorothy Parker or Oscar Wilde. Toss in some May West witticisms and you pretty much get an idea of my thinking - for the most part.) But, for whatever reason, quizzes and quotes did not do it for me.
Then I thought about q words. Quagmire! Quintessential, quiddle, quibble, quark (of cheese and science fame)! Quests and quips.
Queue, as in form a queue - doesn't that sound so much nicer than LINE UP!!! And, then of course, a favorite of mine, Quack. The connotations of that simple word - the sound of a duck, the derisive name given to an unpleasant, inept medical man (or woman).
So, now, here I sit in a total quandry about which to choose. Which then lead me to ponder this question -
How do you go about picking your letter of the week subject?
A small postscript to this post - writing this was quite a quest for me because my letter Q key appears to be on the fritz! It does this - uiet, uack, uest- re uiring me to backup and pound on the key until it does this -
Quiet Quack Quest reQuiring Q. Really it was enough to make me uack up!
