Have you ever wondered where Little Dot's OCD issue regarding dots came from? Believe it or not, there actually was an early origin story and here it is!

  1. I've never been a fan of these, but I'm glad none-the-less to have read this origin story, and I should admit that I found it fairly clever.

    (The ‘⋅’ over the ‘ɪ’ was added, to keep characters from being confused, millenia after the basic glyph made its original appearance. As a matter of æsthetics, I tend to avoid it in handwriting except in cases where I fear such confusion.)
