A - Z Challenge: "Z" is for Zebra ~ "Zelda's Story"

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 "Z", 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.

Thank you for your visit!  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.

"Zelda's Story"
 by Kathy Matthews

Zelda was into the zodiac and was a zealot for zebras.  (She also had a lot of zits.)  With zero tolerance for zoos, Zelda had to admit that if it wasn't for zoos, her chances to see live zebras would be zilch. 

One morning, Zelda awoke feeling like a zombie.  Usually zippy and full of zest, she was just not in the zone.  Partying last night with Zane had zapped her energy.  Her tummy was hurting, and she suspected that it was the zakuska that they had eaten at Zito's. 

Zelda laid back down on the bed, zonked out, and dreamed of Zachery, her favorite zebra at the zoo.

The End.


Yay, I'm all done!  This is the last of my 2012 A-Z Challenge posts.  It has been really fun this year, and thank you so much for stopping by to see me.  The complete list of challenge posts are located on the top of the sidebar for right now.  Eventually, I will move them to the bottom along with last year's challenge posts.
