#AtoZChallenge — Z is for Zip


Which, unfortunately, I do not have a lot of in my step.

At last, we have reached the end of the alphabet because I’m running out of zip to write these blogs.


Zip is the sing, the energy, the spring we have in our step, that usually gets us from a to b quickly.  Without this zest, we would need to take a bus, train, or cab.

Then comes the variations like …

Zip code, we all have one of these, though in some countries it is called a postcode.

Zip it up, meaning do not speak, especially if you’re about to spill a secret.

A zip, which is a part of some types of clothing, usually in trousers, jeans, and skirts to name a few.  Some dresses have long zips, some short, all seem to get tangled at one time or another, or, in the most embarrassing of situations, split.

Then there is a colloquial use of the word zip, meaning nothing, zilch, zero, in other words, a basis for of z words.

And that’s about as much zeal I’m going to show for writing this last blog, and I’m going to close the book on it.

Thank you, and goodnight.

  1. I’d never thought about zip. You had enough of it to write a great post. Purses have zips, too, and tangling can be a serious matter but not as serious as a dress tangle, especially when you’re in a hurry. The zips that unzip from the bottom while you’re trying to zip to the top are the worst. Congratulations on making it to the end. (I feel your pain.)

  2. Well, I’m glad I zipped over to your blog, and saw what it’s all about, before the end of A to Z! This was a clever take on Letter Z. I’m going to follow also. I’ve decided to attempt an historical fiction piece based on my uncles memoir during the period of 1918 and 1928 ~ in between WWI and WWII. It covers the Prohibition. It should be an interesting project. 🙂 Thanks for visiting my blog for A to Z! 🙂

  3. I thoroughly agree with you here. I hadn’t done the challenge for two years for various reasons, and this year I’ve rediscovered what a test of creative energy it is. I’ve written more posts in the last month than in the entirety of the previous year.
