X is for . . . .#AtoZChallenge


The finish line is in sight . . I hear the crowd cheering, "she has almost finished!"  I'm running hard - cheer louder!

X is for


Xray

Yeah, I know it is not creative.  My brain is numb today.  I'm going to go home and take a 30 minute nap in a few minutes!!  Have you had a lot of X-Rays?  My mother-in-law is elderly and when she was pregnant with my husband and his twin brother (63 years ago), they took X-Rays of the babies.  I can't even imagine taking an X-Ray of a baby growing inside!!  When I go to the dentist, they cover my neck and all the way down to my toes (practically) with a heavy lead blanket.  I've had a few X-Rays.  Several years ago, my allergist made me get an X-Ray of my lungs - they were clear!  When I fell in my office a couple of years ago, they took an X-Ray of my hip while I was in the ER to see if it was broken.  I've had an X-Ray of a finger which I dislocated (not broken!) several years ago . . .when you plow into the handle of a door and you look down and your finger is hanging weirdly and you put it in place and it falls again . . .just a tad freaky!


Xylophone

I feel like I'm making a children's coloring sheet with all of the words that a teacher might use for X.
I've always thought it would be cool to play the big Xylophone (I guess that is what they are playing) in a drum line!  I need to google that!   (Yes, it is a big Xylophone!)

Xacuti

Xacuti pungent is a spicy chicken dish native to Goa, western India. Kashmiri chillies and other spices go into making the pungent, bright red curry.This recipe is one of the most famous and delicious Indian dishes cooked with chicken.  I've never eaten this dish but my husband loves red curry chicken so maybe I should learn how to cook it!!

Xanadu

I've never been to Xanadu - have you?

I must read some other blogs today to find out what everyone else used for X!!

I have been a target of multiple xray reports :)
Pregnant women are not supposed to walk through the xray machine in airports etc
Xacuti is a great dish!

These are great Xs! Especially X-Ray - that one is important for life's little accidents. Great post! :)
