For my A to Z Challenge theme I will be posting items that are no longer with us or are close to becoming extinct.
These are great items to use if you are trying to set a time period in your story or to stay away from if you want your story to be timeless.
Quill pens - still around, rarely in use.
Q*bert -This was a popular arcade video game released in 1982. The odd character, Q*bert, would "swear" in a speech bubble filled with characters (like you can see on the side of the video game above) when he would encounter an enemy or die. He is still around, in fact he made an appearance in "Wreck It Ralph" but the video game is not popular like it was in the 80's.
