Q for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 7: The Letter Q                     

Quoz: off beat, and out of time, serendipitous discoveries


I was talking on the cell phone to a daughter and mentioned that a black sweater top (which I didn't have) worn with a multi-colored broom skirt of abstract design (which I did have) would be perfect for an upcoming family party.

She immediately used her cell phone camera to photograph and send an image of the black top she was seeing at that moment in a local clothing store.

'Oh, that's just what I meant,' I said. She purchased it and in short order I held in my hands an idea now manifested in real time.

Technology often wins but it takes good real-time people to wrap it up in a perfect package!

Do you think that quoz worked okay? Do you kind of like quoz?

Another word I've never heard before. now, if serendipity works, I'll hear it all the time now.

Yes I do believe the Quoz worked and I like the sweater and the skirt together, Quite Lovely.

I've never heard this word before - I like it :-)
(The skirt and top look very nice together)

Quoz is good. Good friends are better! Yours sounds great...

As a photographer I love the serendipitous moments so yes, I'm a quoz fan. Imaginative post.

Margaret said...

I haven't come across the word Quoz before. That was a most serendipitous result of your phone call!

Amy said...

Wow, Sue, is that a real word? It's kind of like "cuz" with a "w?" Technology is very helpful these days - my problem is seeing the image on my very small phone screen!

Shigune Matsui said...

Hmm. It's the first non queen based post all day. I liked this new word. It's great to learn something new everyday.

Christine said...

You have a very observant daughter! Neat story. We often don't get the whole picture with serendipitous accounts. Will you get to wear the outfit soon?

Kay L. Davies said...

I've never heard of this word before, either, and I've always considered myself something of a wordaholic. to paraphrase Anthony, we should all be hearing it from someone on the street soon.
I love how your daughter found the sweater the minute you mentioned it. Very quoz, or is it a quoz?
Great post, anyway.

Quoz is a new word for me and I love it. How fun to shop with a friend via cell phone camera.

Quoz is a new word for me, but serendipity is an old favourite. I like your choice of outfit and the wonderful circumstances under which you acquired it! Very Quoz!

I don't kind of like quoz. I very much so like quoz!
Now, if I can only remember it and then remember to use it!

Reader Wil said...

Quoz...?? I thank you for a new word! I cannot find it in my dictionary either. I am glad that there are a few more people who don't know the word. But I like it, because you introduced it!!

Wow, this word is new to me. Thanks for teaching!

LisaF said...

You're fortunate that both of you embrace technology! I found a shirt my MIL was looking for, but had to try and describe it over my cell phone. I bought it and just hoped it was really what she was looking for.

Francisca said...

Your kind of quoz is fantstic and I am SO pleased to learn this word... my world oozes quoz!!

Joy said...

Sounds like a great scrabble word. Coincidences of life are intriguing, this was certainly a perfect one.

Cildemer said...

Never heard of that word either!
But it fits perfectly well;o)
You've got a very daughter and the top matches very well with your nice and colourful skirt!
