Z is for Zipped

Another year, another month, another April A to Z Blogging Challenge zipped up. Granted, I haven't been as faithful to it this year as I was last year, but it did help drag me out of my writing slump a little. And it was still a great experience reading other bloggers and having new folks stop by here. Thank you to all of my readers this past month for your wonderful comments and support. Plus, a huge shout out thank you!!! to Arlee and his crew for the tremendous amount of work they put into hosting this gig.

I didn't blog for "X" because, well... there's just not a lot to do with it aside from some scientific terms. I thought about xenophobia, but all I could come up with was some scathing vitriol. As in, "Dear Xenophobics, get over your tiny little selves. Your fear-fueled anger and hatred are more obnoxious than anything you might possibly be afraid of."

I kind of wanted to write something about youth for "Y", but so many other A to Z'ers shot off that gun, that it would have been superfluous. Let me just say that Henny Youngman had it right: Youth is wasted on the young. I used to hate that phrase, thinking that it was only useful to crotchety old curmudgeons existing on the fumes of bitterness left from their own misspent youth. But I get it now. Much to my chagrin.

Besides all that, I've just been so flippin' busy! Crazy with card orders. And I want more!

So, there you have it. And now, it's back to the salt mines for me.

  1. You did well. And yeah, I want my youth back. Well, at least my youthful body. My mind keeps getting younger.
