The Letter "Q" 

A few days ago, I received the following message from a new friend John at Stumbled Upon, which read:

            "Today I'm writing each one of my mutual friends a letter.
            Yours is the letter "Q"."

I thought this was:

  1. unique;
  2. creative;
  3. amusing;
  4. unexpected; and
  5. down-right fun!

Even more curious, is the fact that, although I utter it often to close friends and relatives, I've never mentioned it on-line or to John . . . that is that I often compare myself to the letter "Q" on many days.     Not so much in the Sesame Street sort of fashion but, because I have fibromyalgia, my muscles, joints and entire body often feels contorted into odd shapes and forms, leaving me to feel as if I'm an example of a portion of a live-action alphabet.     But, not to dwell on my malady, I chose to make something fun out of it (with John's help and unknowing assignment of my letter of choice), and write about what it is like to be the letter "Q."


How to describe life as the letter "Q."     That may be a bit difficult unless you're willing to expand your thinking to extend "outside-the-proverbial-box," and understand how, as the day progresses, I can feel my shoulders rounding over, my upper body feeling heavy and fatigued, and wanting nothing more than to give in to the sincere desire to lie on the floor in the shape of a "Q."     You may be wondering why I would have chosen a "Q" instead of simply an "O."     That's simple!     When you get comments and wolf-whistles about being related to Dolly Parton, there's no way you could contort into the letter "O."     Therefore, to take into consideration the "shape-of-things," so to speak, I must say that a "Q" is more in tune with the description.

Be sure to check out John, and come by and "stumble-around" with us, if you get the chance.
