Earwax Wit

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.
Earwax Wit
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?

Lily looks like she is eagerly awaiting praise - and a treat - for her participation. :-) She's adorable. And I love the tire tread font! Great idea for a theme!

I like the Ennobled Pet one too! Make me want to download it and use it on everything! Well, maybe not everything.

I teach 5th grade and I can TOTALLY see using some of these fonts to spice up activities - especially the paw prints one and earwax wit. Thanks!

As a cross-stitcher, I think I like the embroidery font best. My own favorite E fonts are the calligraphy fonts Edwardian Script and Exmouth.

Looks like the puppy pawprints of Ennobled Pets wins today.

And, yes, Lily and all the pooches demanded plenty treats for posing with the letters. :-)

I appreciate y'all stopping by!

"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 a naughty thing for him to think, *snigger* bet there's more than one thinks this!

Yeah, probably many parents would like to think this when their kids do something really dumb,
