A-Z Challenge Day 26


My friend Keefie has given you a giggle or two at my expense this month, so when I asked him if I could write the final piece, he had little choice but to say yes. I think he was actually quite pleased because he had no idea what to come up with for the letter Z! I suggested Zoppetto* but he no idea what it meant.

I was going to tell you all about my Zumba classes because that starts with a  Z but I’ve decided against it. I didn’t really enjoy them anyway, and last night when instructor Bossy Bella suggested I quit I was quite relieved.

It wasn’t my fault I bopped Nancy on the nose, she came too close to me. It wasn’t my fault I elbowed Martha in the ribs; she should have shimmied to the left, not to the right – or should I have shimmied to right, not the left? Whatever, it wasn’t my fault. It wasn’t my fault I trod on Florence’s foot or tripped Tracy up, or knee’d Brenda’s butt, or farted like a foghorn when I bent down! These things happen

Anyway, I just want to say thank you for all the nice things you’ve said and for coming to my defence on several occasions this month. I’m blowing you all a big wet kiss! Mwah mwah slobber slobber!

As you seemed to like my poem on day seven I thought I‘d leave you with one I’ve written especially for you…

zzxxccRoses are red

Violets are blue

Most poems rhyme

This one doesn’t!


Bye bye x

*BTW, Zoppetto is Italian limping hop dance. Florence is quite good at it since last night!

  1. Hi Rosey – you’d better say ‘allo to that man Keefie … he’s sustained us all with your stories – and boy do you have fun … pity about the Zumba class …. perhaps you could start at ‘ell next time and do line dancing … take care – enjoy the croquet over the summer (when it comes) … and see you around the place – oh and congratulate Keefie .. but I ‘spect he’s in the pub have a zizzing beer – cheers Hilary

  2. Thank you Rosey for the giggles. I have loved getting to know you through Keith’s April A to Z. Cheers to your friendship.
    Take care, Rosey. See you again, soon, on Keith’s blog.🙂
    Congratulations Keith on successfully completing your wonderfully humourous A to Z series. Thanks for adding so much laughter to our days.


  3. I think this comment goes to Rosey and her description of her Zumba class made so annoying by the others around her. I enjoyed the series thoroughly Keith and look forward to many more giggles thanks to Rosey. Congratulations on finishing the A to Z.


  4. You’re a true zinger, sweet Rosey! It’s been a joy to tag along with you. Do tell that fabulous friend of yours (Keefie) Congratulations on captivating A – Z Challenge!

  5. Congrats to Keefie and Rosey for an uber fun series and thanks much for the smiles. I didn’t manage to read all of Rosey’s exploits but the ones I did were super.
    Best wishes,


  6. Ha ha ha. That was a truly touching, at times hard-hitting (literally) farewell speech from Rosey.
    Congrats on completing the challenge with aplomb Keith, even though you had some unfair help from Rosey. Please tell her: So long, and thanks for all the fish. I’m hoping it will keep her busy till whenever we bump into her, for she’ll be thinking about the nonexistent fish that she gifted to us 🙂


  7. So good to hear from you, Rosy. You are one hell of an amazing and fun lady. I loved knowing about your interesting life through Keefie. Hope we get to read more from you. Cheers
