"X" marks the spot





for this week's Alphabe-Thursday over at Jenny Matlock.  


You need two of these 


X chromosome


to get one of these




Genetics determine if the hair color will be red, brunette or




xanthous


Proper upbringing can cause her to be xenodochial such as


Judith Martin, Miss Manners


Hopefully she will not become a xanthippe.  


Xena might be a cute name (probably will be the only girl in class with that name).

  1. Dear, Barbara
    Oh, you gave me tough ones tonight☆☆☆
    I checked words from secound one to forth one.
    I have no knowledge about wife of Socrates, but I hope I am not Xanthippe to my husband (^^;)
    And also hope I AM xenodochial to the people I first meet♡♡♡
    Thank you SO much for sharing these words,
    Night, night my friend♡♡♡
    Hugs to you, Orchid*

  4. Oh Barbara, you have such a clever sense of humor!! I always enjoy your posts. That baby is ADORABLE, and I wish I was a redhead like the girl in the picture. I never knew Socrates' wife's name, so this was very informative. I'm glad you like the word posts; I sometimes wonder if I'm the only one who's quirky that way. Isn't it great how we can all challenge and learn from each other here in Blogland?

    XO,

  10. Thank you for teaching me a new word. Xenodochial is much more interesting than hospitable, but much harder to pronounce.

    Great Post!

    P.S. My "X" post for Mrs. Jenny's last round of Alphabe-Thursday was on Xanthippe.

  25. Now that was a hard one! Good job. That product of the chromosomes is absolutely precious!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gosh! I should get in on this alphabet thing because when I was teaching, I always had my students make an alphabet book each year. They always struggled with X, y, and Z. but you always found out who the clever ones were. And Barbara, you are very clever!

  29. Wow, three new x words for me. But they are too difficult to remember. Great post though!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Clever! I could do most any letter I think but X would be a challenge. Of course, you rose to that and conquered. :-)

  31. If Miss Jenny gives a prize for the most "x" words in a post, I'm sure you would be a serious contender. I'll be back later with my dictionary to learn what your "x" words mean. Thanks for the learning opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I bet you are the only one to come up with most of these words, lol!! What a creative post. Thanks for stopping by:-) I hope you have a great weekend!!

    ReplyDelete

  37. Barbara -- babies are such a miracle! Those x words are waaaay beyond me but I bet those smark kids who do spelling bees could spell and would know the definitions. Joni

  38. Hi there,

    Thanks for having left a comment on my blog for the "Tangled" post. I have no idea how long the movie was shown in the USA, but it must have been a couple of weeks for sure (starting last Thanksgiving). Let me know when you watched it on DVD, okay?

    Maybe you want to check out my Oktoberfest giveaway . It would be nice to welcome you back to my blog.

    Greetings from Munich, Germany,
    Birgit

    PS: Oh, I almost forgot to mention how much I like your X post -- and the W post for that matter. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. In a million years I would never have thought of using the X chromosone!

    Now I will have to try remember it for the next round! ha!

    This was really clever!

    A truly Xcellent X post!

    A+
