A - Z Challenge: "Y" is for Yellow-jacket

During the month of April, I am participating in the Blogging From A-Z April 2012 Challenge, where we post everyday except for Sundays. I have decided to make flashcards for the letter of the day out of my photos, and then use the picture as a writing prompt.  I am using my Thesaurus to make a story out of words beginning with the letter "Y", and to have it make sense.  I have no idea of the twists and turns that it will take, and usually crack myself up when I am all done.  Hope these little ditties make you smile too. 

I might have messed up on this one too.  Is this a yellow-jacket or is it a wasp?  Either way, they are mean and don't die when they sting you, so I don't like them.

Thank you for your visit, and please come back again tomorrow! I'll be by to visit those who leave me comments, and also visit as many others as I can. If you like what you see, please feel free to become my newest follower. ~ Kathy M.

"Yolanda's Story"
by Kathy Matthews

Yolanda Young loved yellow.  Her hair was yellow, her car was yellow, her house was yellow, and most of her clothes were yellow.  So was her itsy bitsy teeny weenie yellow polka dot bikini.  In fact, Yolanda was the reason that Bryan Hyland even wrote his song by that name.  He used to watch her as she tanned in the yard, yackity-yacking on her yellow phone and thumbing through her yearbook.  That young man thought that she looked yummy, yet awfully yellow.  

Yesterday, Yolanda was yawning when a yellow-jacket landed on the yams she was eating.  Thinking quickly, she yelled, grabbed a yardstick and smashed that yellow-jacket back into yesteryear and yon.  Her dog yipped at the splattered yams, which met yeah, this yield looks good! 

The End.

I yelped with giggles at this yummy little story! P.S.-That's what I call a yellow jacket! Nasty things!

Me thinks it is a yellow jacket. Nothing you want to argue with.
Really cute yellow story.

Yellow jackets and wasps, and hornets, who cares? They are all vicious and sting something ferocious!I like the way you have incorporated all your April themes, and the itsy , bitsy, yellow, polka-dot bikini added the frosting on the cake after your creative tale.

Wendy said...

Did you notice how "The End" lined up perfectly with the bikini bottom? Did you plan that or did you just get lucky? HA~

Tammy said...

Yellow Jackets are REALLY yucky!

Loved your "Y" tale and of course the alphabet pages from the Oregon Alphabet book.
