The last entry in the A to Z challenge is a really interesting word - Zumbooruk. It means:
A small cannon carried on the back of a camel
Yes, you read that right. At some point in time, somebody thought it'd be a good idea to shoot a cannon from a camel's back. Can you imagine how incredibly hard it must have been to keep that animal still each time you fired a cannonball? Cannons are fairly loud, and I bet those poor camels were ready to stampede after every shot. Just goes to show you that we (humans) make some fairly dumb decisions in the pursuit of war and weaponry.
As I finish up this challenge, I have to say it actually was quite a challenge. I do admit I had to cheat a little near the end (due to illness) but I'm still glad I put up the 26 posts. Going forward, I don't know if I'll be able to keep up posts every day, but I do think this challenge has reminded me why I started blogging. It's fun.
Feel free to let me know your thoughts on my word choices, this word in particular, or what you liked best during the month of April.
