The meaning of X

A kiss

A "do not" symbol when placed over the picture of another object

A way to mark the spot where treasure is found

An unknown quantity

In Runes, a rune of the elder futhark meaning "Gift" and indicating the principles of sacrifice and generosity, cooperation and relationship.

Or us!

The first one's by far the most fun, though...

So: XXXXX to you!

So my goodness, Mr. X - how could I have forgotten that one!!

I would like, as my superhero power, to have x-ray vision so that I could go for an x-rated walk around town...

Don't need x-ray vision to have an x-rated walk around this town.

But LJ - what brought this on? New project made up of XXXXXXs?

LJ said...

Hello H. What a lovely greeting.

Edvard, unbecoming for a father in waiting. Have some dignity man!

Joe. Last entry was on (o). I went all weird and started a subblog, Jade Onion and asked that people simply leave a stone (o)rather than commenting on that blog. Someone, Edvard I believe - yes, Edvard - was guessing what a stone meant.

And so I wrote about (o). Then, Mr. X, for obvious reasons, stated his preference for X. I had to be fair to X and O both, didn't I?

I didn't? Oh damn. No wonder life is so complicated.

PX Post Exchange. (Shopping.)

According to Sandra Boynton's ABC, "X isn't for anything."

Kate said...

Hadn't really thought about it before. It's quite interesting. Hope you're well!

LJ said...

You are all such smarty pants. We can't go with the last one, Zhoe - it would hurt Mr. X's feelings.
Kate - just silliness. Yeah. I'm fine.

So X can mean a treasure, an unknown, or nothing. So I guess using an X in "Xmas" would be applicable, whether you are a believer, agnostic, or athiest.

Hi Mark, sweetie.
Good twist, D.
