It was Q-day, and as I quietly questioned myself about the subject of my post, I was overrun by a quantity of queer and quarrelsome Q-words.
"Quit, it," I said, "None of your quackery. I have a quality piece to compose."
They were quite adamant and would not be quitted. I could not quarantine my brain long enough to cogitate on more serious Q-subjects. I could not quash the inundation of obscure Q-words that were quibbling in my mind for preeminence. I was quite overcome.
"I am on a quest for excellence," I complained, "I will not get caught up in a quagmire of queer quips and crazed queries from you. Begone."
What can a writer do when the words run out of control, but quiver? You cannot quell them, they become the master, you the slave to their quirky and quixotic ways.
I tried, oh I tried to quench the flow of Q-words, but they would not be quenched. They became more querulous and quarrelsome as they queued up to escape my brain.
It was like a quartet of quarreling quidnuncs on a quest to quite overrun the page and take control of my writing. I felt queasy. All I had wanted was to quickly compose a quality Q-post. My quadriceps were aching from my gym workout and I longed to quaff my quart of tea and cogitate.
I felt queasy with concern over the situation. Were my qualifications as a blogger good enough to pacify my readers? Would they acquiesce and accept the takeover by a quintillion Q-words? I had my qualms.
"Cease this quackery," I bellowed. "Your behavior has put me in a quandary. I know nothing of quants, quaggas, quarks or quantum physics, so I cannot compose a cogent post on those learned subjects but I desire to create the quintessential blog post on the letter Q. I cannot do this if you continue to cast up this crazy quilt of Q-ness in my face."
I was caught in a quagmire of Qs and there was no escape. I was quaking with anger, but knew the battle was lost. The quaint Q-words had won the day. My quest for quality was all for nought. I felt like a quack, but pressed "Publish".
