As her classmates departed with zest for their kickball game, Michelle murmured her apology. She wanted to test her new invention.
Peering through her Mech-a-Boo, Michelle turned towards the wall of the principal’s office… Just as he was kissing his secretary.

It is fascinating to read how these 41 words which you strung together with great enthusiam, captures the energy of the talking point – ZEST’ with lively active passion. Vigorous and enthusiastic enjoyment is apparent in the classmates, the Mech-a-Boo, the lovers and the zesty colour of the secretary’s knitted jumper.
The clockwork peeping Tom is just too cute for words. Curiosity caught the cat.

Oh sorry the colour of the jumper showed up zesty in the morning light, besides it looked like a knitted top.
My eyes were seeing zesty lemon drop
This is clever ~ and funny. I am pondering the “what if” ….

I can envision a twelve-volume set titled “The Mech-a-Boo Chronicles” and its associated television spin-offs. 😀
💝 Mike 💝 ~ I feel like she would need to create some other inventions. The M-a-B would get old quickly!
Sweet! A stand alone or the start of a novella
