Q - Quick

Flyingcloud clip artI eat quickly, I walk quickly, I used to work quickly. I have a hard time moving slowly...well, unless I'm tired. My late husband, Mike, walked faster than me but my current husband, Stu, typically walks slower than me. I've had to learn to moderate my pace.

But there are other definitions for the word "quick". Here are some sample sentences, courtesy of

  • The remark cut her to the quick.
  • He got to the quick of the matter.
A little more obscure (archaic meanings):
  • The quick and the dead. (or the live and the dead)
  • She was quickening. (she was pregnant)

Regardless, I am NOT quickening, I am quick (in oh so many ways), I try not to cut to the quick but am usually good at getting to the quick of the matter.



  1. Quickly read. Good work.

  2. How did I miss you were doing the AtoZ this year! Must check emails.. Great to see you here again. Will catch up quick. see what I did there, great Q :)

  3. Not a problem, I am SOOOOO far behind in reading other blogs. Sigh...thank you for taking time to read all my A-Z ramblings!

  4. The Quick and the Dead would make a good title. Something about "quick" that sparkles the imagination.
