Greetings, vintage mates. A funny thing happened to TVTA on the way to archives… we got a little more zanier than usual… I blamed the cat, and he blamed me, then we called it quits and decided to blame Denise over at Girlie On The Edge Blog
If you would like to blame Denise too, then why not follow her lovely blog and join in the zany fun that is Six Sentence Stories!
Here is our zany detour in all its kooky glory…
Oxford English Dictionary definition of zany
… and now… TVTA brings you (a most zany): SIX SENTENCE STORY
There was a young girl called Janey
who everyone thought was zany.
T’was largely her diet
which caused such disquiet
for Janey ate everything with gravy.
Cornflakes and gravy, poached eggs with gravy,
bananas and gravy, hot chocolate and gravy,
peanuts with gravy, fish fingers and gravy,
pancakes and salad and croissants with gravy.
With certain dismay, her mum said one day: ‘Janey it pains me for you to be zany and eat all your food mixed up with gravy.’
Replied Janey quite sanely and with words spoken plainly: ‘Mum don’t berate me for being zany, when at school my friend Daisy says gravy with everything makes you brainy!’
Zany word origin: late 16th century from French zani or Italian zan(n)i, Venetian form of Gianni, Giovanni ‘John’, stock name of the servants acting as clowns in the commedia dell’arte.
… yes, you do have to be mad to work here, and it helps 🙃
Thank you for being zany with us!
