a to z challenge 2018, “Z”

Well, this is it. The last post for the April 2018 A to Z Challenge. I hope you have either:

  1. learned something
  2. laughed
  3. snorted
  4. or at the very least rolled your eyes a time or two. I know I did while writing these.

So…onward to the last letter: Z!

zmaragdinus!

Do ya need help in pronouncing that? I sure did. Took YEARS before I could say it correctly.

Shumar-ag’-deen-us    there ya go. say THAT fast three times!

let’s just do some visuals and see if you can guess what the word means from them……..

Did that help?  NO?

Here’s a hint…it isn’t “green”………..need another hint?

wow, either I put in really bad clues or ya’ll are just being dense………okay…final clue. It was the “official” item absolutely needed to get married in Rome about 4 BC…………….

yep…………it means emerald.
