Yes, it’s a cheat. I admit it. I didn’t go for one of the legitimate X-words, like xylophone (why is it always, always xylophone?) or xenon. Because really, what kind of post can you write about a xenon xylophone? Also, I think there should be something called a xenon xylophone.
On the non-cheating side of things, I think I have finally kicked this stupid cold, sending those mean, irritating germs on their merry way. Or not on their merry way. Whatever it is that happens to germs when they’re forced out, I seem to have done it. Yay! So though I’m a little on the tired side (and let’s be honest, who isn’t) I am no longer in possession of a nose that, in direct conflict with at least three laws of physics, is completely blocked and yet running at the same time.
Hopefully that means I’ll be around to say hi and visit all of your wonderful blogs I have neglected, A-to-Zers and non-A-to-Zers alike. My germs were not much for blogging, I’d have to say.
So back to the challenge, and my x-tremely lax choice for the letter X. I don’t know about you, but for me, X has to be the hardest letter to find a legitimate word for. I can’t wait to see what everyone else has chosen, and how you all have solved for X.
Yes, I went through all of that to make a pretty weak math joke. Don’t judge me. It was worth it and I’d do it again.
