Zing and Zang and Art

(We’re back from our trip to South Dakota. The flight home was tiring.  You can read about it here  if you like.  Anyway, I should be able to read all posts this week.  I was surprised at how much I missed being able to do that!  And–I thought this was a good prompt for bringing Zing and Zang back into play  🙂  )

“All those arches make me dizzy,” complained Zing. “Why do earth people make their buildings so huge?  Wasteful, it seems to me!”

Zang gave him a long look.  ‘You know, Zing, it seems you can find nothing to do but to complain, lately.  Just look at how beautiful the sculptures are! Look at the detail in those arches!  Look at the tasteful way the plants are used indoors!  I LOVE this place!”

“You two just make my tired ache,” grumbled Zinnia.  “Why I drew this assignment, I’ll never know. NOT my lucky day!

    This leaves me smiling – love the developing voices, and it’s good to know that Zang appreciates the efforts to create beauty even if Zing is underwhelmed. I see Zinnia as the older sister fed-up now with looking after her younger brothers.

    They would not be satisfied if they didn’t have each other to bicker about. This is great, you perfectly show a different (alien) view of things that are completely normal to us. Zing is correct, but so is Zang who has a different understanding of wastefulness and art. I’m still not fond of Zinnia. 🙂
