X is for xerography. Couldn't manage an x-ray, thought XL a bit of a cheat, no xylophone around. Xerox becoming outdated.
X is a rather sad letter, a negation in English, an ex-whatever. As an initial, it holds so little space in the dictionary. A leftover from Greek, now homeless. Used to cross out, or admit illiteracy, or shorten longer words, a redundant letter now that K and S have reconciled. Or said like Z when it makes it to the front of a word, afraid of losing it's place.
Cross your fingers and wait for Xmas.
