The day is January 3, 2018. Zeelo's up and at 'em early, which is slightly out of character. Not really knowing what to do with herself'since she's normally sleeping'she decides to check in on her friends. Maybe one of them can explain to her what one is supposed to do in the time between morning and lunchtime.
First on her list of Zee Zees to see is Mezlo. And who better to start with than him'head chef'who can tell her what she's supposed to be eating so early in the day. She knocks a few times on his front door and waits eagerly. And she waits. And she waits some more. Nobody's coming. Strange, she thinks, but it's very possible he spent the night at Zed's. So she makes her way over to the Applesaucer to see.
'Beam me up!' Says Zeelo staring straight up at the Applesaucer's underbelly. And again, no reply. Is Zed gone too? 'Where did everybody go? And why didn't they invite me?' She thinks to herself. She gives a couple stern knocks to the Applesaucer's steel frame in hopes that the loud ringing would garner some attention, but still, nobody came.
Just as soon as she turned away to walk home there was a flash and a whirring noise. Out of the Applesaucer popped Mezlo, Zed, Zuney, Zippee, Chez and Winzu, each one of them dressed in striped pajamas and a night cap.
'Zeelo!' Mezlo cried out, and he ran up to her for a big hug. Zeelo tells Mezlo how she was looking all over for him and Zed and that she was beginning to worry all her friends were doing something without her. 'No silly, It's Festival of Sleep Day. The one day a year you make special plans to rest relax and hang out in your PJs.' Of course, Zeelo had forgotten'it's meant to be a day of recovery after the long holiday season. The next thing Mezlo said made it all very clear for Zeelo.
'And when we called to invite you to our sleepover, you were already sleeping.'
Zeelo laughed, gave a quick stretch and plopped down right beside Mezlo.
'January 3rd, my favorite day of the year,' and she drifted off to sleep.
