"Z" is for zipper ... — My Alphabe-Thursday — "Z" —


Zipper.  Closes, like you'd better zip your mouth. 

Zippy.  Altogether different, closes nothing, just zips around fast.

Zippier.  Like zipping around, zippy, only a bit faster.

Zipless.  Goes, but not zippy at all.

Zootomy.  Wished I'd picked this number, it sounds like a lot more fun.  Besides I like animals.

Za.  Short for pizza.  Like, let's order some "za" for supper tonight.  Your Dictionary, za

Z.  Short for 'the'.  Like I got "Z" word to be zippy in zipping this post up.  First find a picture or two.

Quite a few Scrabble words in this link, it got me started:

Zip.  (verb)  1.
 fasten with a zipper. 2. informal
move at high speed.



 ......(noun) 1. (British) a zipper. 2. (informal)
energy; vigor.
. . . . . . . . .3. short for ZIP code .
 . . ..4. (North American) Nothing -- I got 'zip' for my effort 
.
That reminds me of a joke I read someplace about politicians.

Did you hear about the politician who refused to listen to her conscience?

She didn't want to take advice from a stranger.

What not to wear to work:
Link to a nice little article from Forbes On-lineBy Laura Sinberg, Forbes.com (Picture is from that on-line article)

I am retired but my son Mike is my fashion director for the way I dress in the s
ubdivision. He thought my raggedy shorts and holey shirt had to go.


Mrs. Jim is my fashion director for my leisure and in public dressing. She is fairly liberal but does make sure I have not missed any belt loops or forgotten to zip my pants up.


Note:  all after the definition for the word 'zip' I copied from a prior post, of  July 7, 2009.

Fun Z post!!
 
I'm so happy Jenny is going to continue on! I would miss everyone so much...
 
What a fun post! Glad Mrs. doesn't let you run around missing belt loops or zippers.
 
Very entertaining post, Jim. But, no Za-Za. She was quite a zippy lady. I bet she would've loved your Mustang II Ghia. :-)

We need a website for what not to wear to the mall! Just my opinion. :) We'll see what Jenny has in store for us next Wednesday!
 
I am going to miss this meme. I will miss everyone here too unless we all continue on Jenny's new adventure. I am sad but happy too. I always enjoy your shares. You have a nice way with words. Take care and enjoy your weekend.
