~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.17 -- "Q" is for ...
Friday's Hunt for the week of April 28st: (1) Starts with Q; (2) Week's Favorite; and (3) Evening
(1) Starts with "Q": Q-tip is a common compound word seldom seen in the blogs, not even for the "Q" word of the week. Guess I was pretty hard up. Please see the "Note" below for a rundown of the name. It must be properly protected or it will go generic. I believe this may be the case already. Time will tell.
So of what purpose is the lowly Q-tip? Men use it to hand pollinate the citrus plants, apply glue or paint in hard-to-get-to places, clean the wax out of their ears (I'd rather use the rounded edge of a paper clip), use it with alcohol or nail polish remover for cleaning up tiny spots, and--what am I leaving out for the guys?
But what in the world do women do with their Q-tips? They are the keepers, we men have to ask for one. Mrs. Jim had this one and another in the top drawer in the bathroom. She said she had a bag of them under the sink, but I didn't see them.
But what does she do with them? What does she use them for? Most ladies aren't brave or stupid enough to dare stick one in her ear. Nor does she build model cars or work with trains. My guess is that she uses them for tasks which men use their index finger but for which a women wouldn't dare use her finger.
Now, I am asking for the women reading this to tell me what they use the Q-tips, i.e. "cotton swabs", for.
