He says it – yowzaa! – all the time. At the end of every sentence. I’m telling you that word, which isn’t really even a word, is driving me bonkers. If he says it one more time I’m going to stuff his mouth full of dirty sweat socks. I’m going to bash him in the face with a cast iron skillet (wait, I don’t have a cast iron skillet). I can’t take it any more!

  1. Yowzaa entered her new class timidly. So many faces and none looked like hers. The kind woman at the front smiled and greeted her in a language she barely understood. She pointed to a series of hooks on the back wall where other children had hung their bookbags and coats. Yowzaa did the same. Next, the teacher motioned to an empty desk near hers. Yowzaa sat down there and found a construction paper card with thumbprint flowers drawn upon it. The words read, “Welcome Home, Yowzaa”. All of her classmates had written their names around the flowers. Yowzaa smiled for the first time in months.

  2. A ball , frayed and old , sang past , whirling madly , before landing in a small cloud of dust , rolling to a stop hesitantly at the edge of the field .

    It was a six. The batsman yelled in ecstatic joy , “Yowzaa!!”

    “It is howzzat , not yeow whatever .” Muttered the losing bowler.

    Next ball , again whizzed to a four . This boy was a wizard at batting . And he was alone . That didn’t stop his celebratory whoop “Yowzaa!!” He screamed loud enough to bring some audience out of the gray concrete building.

    “Yowzaa !!” A young gent replied , hanging from the balustrade, fist pumping the air . Replying in a language , of their own , the brothers-in arms .
