Writers have gotten creative with the titles. The movies have joined in.
Showing at theaters this week are multi-word titles that use colons and sometimes even hyphens:
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked
Sherlock Homes: A Game of Shadows
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – part 2
This titles-with-colons-and-explanations trend spurred a list of book titles in my little pink notebook that I keep on my nightstand. NOW, it is possible that these titles are silly due to my general peculiarities, or to the sleeping (herbal) meds I take, or even the non-herbal meds.
Just bear with me while I list my possible (and highly improbable) new book projects:
Riveting Tales of Menopause: One Woman’s Struggle with Sanity
Dark Halls: The Post-Christmas Laundry Avalanche
Frozen Depths: The Mystery of the Mixed Vegetables
The Not Shining: The Missing Batteries
When Polyester Attacks: Hot Flashes
The Loneliness of the Channel Surfer: The Late Night Hours
To Tweet or Not To Tweet: That Is the Question
Living Large: The Upsurge of Elastic Waists
Who Turned the Heat Up: Guilty?
The Missing Remote: Who Used It Last?
Silly, I know.
But, I ask you: Why Not?
Again: Why the Heck Not?
