Z for Zelotic – #atozchallenge


“A Brilliant Conspiracy” Episode 26

Blurb & other Episodes


Zelotic prisoners detained means gratitude.

Quinella strategized, xenial Archibald lures Jamila racing. Nirvana unbounded – kismet.

Though habile Yoshi escapes custody, vanishing over borders, while Interpol fumes.



Habile                          dexterous; adroit

Kismet                         fate; destiny

Nirvana                       any place of complete bliss and delight and peace;  (Hinduism and Buddhism NOT for Archibald) the beatitude that transcends the cycle of reincarnation; characterized by the extinction of desire and suffering and individual consciousness

Quinella                       bet predicting first and second-place finishers, in either order

Xenial                          relating to hospitality

Zelotic                         of the nature of a zealot


Archibald’s ‘Horse of the Day’


Zenyatta won 19 of 20 starts; first mare to win the Breeders’ Cup Classic (2009); first to win two different Breeders’ Cup races (Ladies’ Classic in 2008, Classic in 2009).

But I have to accept that Betting is a mug’s game and Zero is, “The value of most betting systems and tips!”


Jamila’s ‘Daily Poison’


Zarontin   Trade name for Ethosuximide, an anti-epileptic medication;

Symptoms: can cause swelling of the limbs, liver failure, and fatal bone marrow aplasia. There is a delay of one to several days in the onset of the coma, mainly because it takes several hours for the above symptoms to kick in.  Acute overdoses may produce nausea, vomiting, and CNS depression including coma with respiratory depression.

A relationship between ethosuximide toxicity and its plasma levels has not been established.

  1. Zelotic. Now that’s a very strange word to finish the challenge with 😉

    Congratulation for completing the challenge, Roland. I think yours was one of the most original I’ve seen.
