Like so many others, I have no idea what to do about this strange letter of the alphabet that hasn’t already been said. Xerox, x-rays, xenophobia, x marking the spot, and so on have all been done. Someone has even mentioned X as dealing with our exes. (Very few are on good terms with their exes. I’m one of many and I’d certainly like to see him X-ed out)
Maybe there is something others haven’t thought of I could try. What about Xanadu? The fabled city that was dreamed of by the long dead poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, in his poem Kubla Khan. Xanadu really was a city in China and it was the capitol of Khan’s empire until he decided to move it to what is now Beijing.
I could go on further, but frankly, I want to dream about the city as it appeared in the poet’s dream that inspired the poem.
You know, this is a far cry better than trying to write about Xopenex or some other medication starting with the letter X.
