A to Z Challenge { Y }

9am...I'm hijacking my kids' computer for a moment...my hard drive is on the verge of crashing. Yoicks!
When I'm up and running, I'll hop around and visit your blogs and respond
to your lovely comments. Fingers crossed I don't lose everything.

We interrupt the regularly scheduled blog posts
  for April's A to Z Challenge!

I have no idea where my fingers and keyboard will take me
as I'm inspired with each day's corresponding letter.
Take the journey with me!
I look forward to your feedback.

Today's letter: Y

The younker stood under the yew yaffing. When I asked why all the yammering, the younker replied, "That yaffingale must've had a yapness, 'cuz he ate Miss Yancy's yag!" 


Yoicks! Miss Yancy would certainly be yarling if she were to discover what had happened to her yag. With a yikker as a yelt would make, I yerked up my skirts and clambered up the yew. Quietly, I stretched out my arm and gave the yaffingale a scratch. The yeuk did the trick. The yaffingale yexed and Miss Yancy's yag appeared. 

Does this yarn seem a little yeasty to you? Perhaps I could sell it as a yellowback! 

Special thanks to Noah Webster and his Unabridged Dictionary for the 'Y' words

What is your favorite 'Y' word from the story?

Happy Friday!
