A little “za” makes a lot of difference

za-za-zsu

Can you bottle up some za-za-zsu?

So it was Clinton’s little gaffe of using the word “peregruzka” (overcharged) rather than “perezagruzka” (reset) that got me thinking.

“Za”, the little words that’s missing. In english-terms, this little word doesn’t even mean anything. The most approximate that I can think of is the domain .za representing South Africa, and ZA, the mass-market cosmetic brand by Shiseido.

But miss a “za”, you miss so much. Just like how Carrie wistfully talks about the need for the “za-za-zsu” in a relationship (SATC Season 6).
