Today I offer a mock book cover inspired by the punctuation mark eschewed by my QWERTY keyboard:
Like peanut butter and chocolate, the ! and the ? make a delicious team in the in the right circumstances. (In the case of peanut butter and chocolate, the circumstances are always right.)
But today, the spotlight shines on the airinterrobang. I want to see more of this gesture in daily discourse. Who’s the first to raise their hand? The mock book cover also gives a nod to the cozy mystery genre, as well as my propensity to talk with my hands, not to mention my amusement anytime air quotes are deployed during a verbal conversation. How about air quote emojis–those are always fun. (Are you sensing air quotes anywhere moin the previous statement?)
Sidebar: I once used the term ‘air interrobang’ to a friend, and they replied, “What airline is that?” Because this is the first day of the A-to-Z Challenge, I created an additional procrastination to accompany that anecdote. You can find it on my fledgling Pinterest page. Ah heck, I’ll include the image, below, and save you a step.
So concludes my A-Day. I’m ashamed to admit how long it took to create this post. Not every A-to-Z will be a mock book cover but a few more are on the menu.
