Z is for.....ZA


Za is slang for pizza, and it can rack up some really high points on the Scrabble board. My twin sister and I used to play Scrabble at her house til dawn. We now play online Scrabble, which means we play our turn whenever we're good and ready, but it isn't nearly as much fun. Boohoo.

On another sad note, I hate that I discovered Mrs. Matlock's alphabet class on the letter Y, but I did, and now it's over. All good things must end, I suppose. Another big boohoo.

  1. That's good to know about Za being a word just in case I play scrabble again. Take heart, Alphabe-Thursday is going to continue. Great Z post.

  14. We used to play scrabble all of the time. My husband loves the game so much that he used to keep the board out and play against himself. (Now, that is kind of pathetic, isn't it?)

    I think I'll reintroduce the game.
    Just so I can use Za.

  20. I'll remember Za the next time we play Scrabble.

    Good news...next week Ms. Matlock is having a make up class and you can do the other 24 letters of the alphabet. :)

    Then she's having summer school based on the colors of the rainbow. Can you make it?

  21. What a cute link! I didn't know you could use slang in scrabble but I'm totally going to remember this word for "just in case"!

    Alphabe-Thursday will be continuing. We're just doing an Alphabet Soup link next week, summer color school and then resuming.

    So please don't stop hanging out with us!

    I'm glad you linked up today.

    I'm hoping we see you again next week!

    A+
