Z is for Zombie

Zombie chef... if this is you, blame the google...
Zack the zombie picked at a zit and fussed with his zipper. Zoe tried to distract him with a trip to the zoo and a zebra zooming about. She pointed out zinnias. She even showed him a zeppelin zipping by. Zack zoned.

Zoe zocked Zack. “Zack, want to watch a zomcom?

Zack said, “I'm not a zorb. You don't need to entertain me.”

Zoe backed off. “Then I will zumba.”

After zumba, Zoe zeroed in on Zack's zucchini ziti and yelled, “Zoinks! The zaatar spicing is amazing.”

“Now pay me a zirconia. Or your brains.”

[These last few were really hard.]

You were amazing in April, Hart! Some very clever material for A to Z.

Just gotta ask--is "zomcom" something you made up for this story? Love the idea of it. If that's your invention you may have coined a new word.
