X is the most magical letter. No other letter can do what X does.
You aren't O-Large, you're X-Large.
Combine that with the magical NUMBER -- 3 -- and you get XXX-Large, or XXX rated, or x-tra x-tra x-tra!
Don't like Christ in your holidays? Call it Xmas.
How about at work, where we call it x-section rather than cross-section, or txr instead of transistor.
Want to dump your lover? Go ahead. Now they are your ex!
Hold your arms in an X. Go ahead. It's a symbol of power and it feels powerful, doesn't it.
How about an X-Ray, or X-Ray vision?
What's the most common mathematical symbol? Yep, you guessed it: x
How does a pirate mark his treasure? Not with a W, because X marks the spot!
Want to cover a deadman's eyes? We don't use A or B, we draw death with an X.
Need help? Call the X-Men.
X-acto knife. X-Factor. Generation X. The X-Files.
X X X! It's the magical letter.
What other X-terms can you come up with?
My wizard Xax's real name is Xaxanakis. He picked it because he wanted a name that looked 'wizardy' and complicated, yet actually was easy to pronounce. 'zax-AN-a-kiss'. I still get readers complaining that it's too hard, but I thought it was hilarious to have a wizard purposely pick a convoluted name.
X is a magical letter. I've always wanted to go to Xanadu, roller skate as a scantily clad goddess in a make believe roller rink and have my image used as a mural in some back alleyway. (snicker....)
Xanax! I'll need it to recover from the fact your alphabet is over :( What will I do now for Xcitement? Not sure Xactly how am I gonna get over the Xtreme loss of my morning coffee reading material!
Can't think of any. I think you fabulously covered them all!
Great blog, btw. New follower!
Eric: Great minds think alike, I guess!
LOL! You win. Most Xs ever.
I always think X represents a sort of vagueness, a sort of "define me how you want to, I'll mean anything you want" kind of letter, whereas you most certainly cannot do that with a T or, good heavens no, a Q.
X represents all and everything we can think of, and then leaves room for more in our imaginations. X is the mystery lover, the romantic spot, the expectations never voiced.
PS Since apparently I can't say no to you, you should be happy to know that tomorrow, for the first time on my blog, I will include one of my own poems with a post. You asked, which means you're not allowed to make fun of how lousy and emo it is!
I can't believe how many different x possibilities people have come up with today.
X is definitely magic.
When it comes to clothing size, I wouldn't call the X magical unless we consider the fact that I want it to disappear. There are some interesting X connections though.
tx = treatment
hx = history
rx = prescription
xFer = transfer
xMit = transmit
I work in government :) I have tons of X-references.
OK, eXiting now. I have to go catch up on your posts.
I remember the X-Files! So many Xs in your post it looks like one of my high school science tests after it's been marked.
Thanks for the birthday wishes - right back atcha (and sorry, but I actually outrank you by a coupla' years).
