Lily with the letter EFor the Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I’m having Fun with Fonts. Each day I’ll feature a few I like based on either the look of the font or its name. I’ll also pick a font to inspire one of my tweet tales

I mentioned yesterday I was disappointed in the D font offerings because there weren’t really any that grabbed my attention like previous letters. Well, I thought of another reason: B brought us cute bunnies, and C offered up adorable cats – but no sweet doggies for D? As a dog lover, I find that unacceptable! It's not enough that my daily letters are displayed by Rish family dogs, I want a dog font! Fortunately, the E font made a small attempt at compensating for that egregious oversight by presenting Ennobled Pet. Sure, one might say these could be the footprints of cats or some other animal, but I choose to believe these are the footprints of the dogs that tiptoe across my heart.Ennobled Pet

There are a lot of different script/handwriting fonts out there, but I liked this one because it seems like Ersatz Quality is what you’d use if you were going to digitally sign the Declaration of Independence.

I did a lot of cross-stitching when I was young, so I like Embroidery for the nostalgia factor.

I know nothing about cars. In fact, I would be a terrible witness to a crime where a getaway car was used because here’s how I identify cars: car, truck, or van. Beyond that, I could tell you the color and that’s it. So when I saw the Eagle GT II font, I could tell it was a tire tread but didn’t understand the name. Fortunately, my good friend Google informed me the Eagle GT II is “Goodyear's Performance All-Season tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, coupes, performance pickups and sport utility vehicles looking to combine classic styling with all-season traction.” Good to know! I just think a tire tread font looks cool.

For today’s tweet tale inspiration, I picked another font with a weird name even though the font itself is kind of muddled. But with the name Earwax Wit, I just had to use it.

He watches his son, convinced he’s dumber than the orange crud he scrapes out of his ears. He sure hopes his wife had an affair back then.
 
What do you think of these fonts? Do they inspire any stories in your mind? How Earnest does Lily look with her letter E?
