  2. 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.

      1. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’•
        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

  3. I can envision a twelve-volume set titled “The Mech-a-Boo Chronicles” and its associated television spin-offs. ๐Ÿ˜€
