Story Challenge: Letter “X”

Hi Bloggers! Do you have to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “X”? For example I’ve written about an “Xmas Tree” (read below) or clothes sized XXL, written about X-ray or X-design, about the Xe Khong river in Laos, X-rated or the “Xmas State Of Mind” etc. – I’m sure you’ll find an own story or a short reflection tagged with “X”! Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “X”!!!

Xmas Tree

X = X-mas tree, glass sculpture
X? I’ve written about X-ray (a tooth is in the lungs of my wife, thrown in by a silly dentist; it’s too dangerous to pull the tooth out), I’ve written about clothes in XXL-large size – and I’ve written often about X-mas. Yearly. We had our most wonderful christmas time in Venice some years ago. Our daughter married there her Italian architect. We stood on a balcony to watch the boats down on the canale grande. We strolled through the medieval city centrum – no cars anywhere. Walking like mankind did for many centuries (before automobiles were invented). But nevertheless there was much traffic: tourists from USA, Japan, Arabia: they rented gondolas with singing Italians. Amore mio! On the great St. Marcus piazza a casino had installed a gift: a large Xmas tree – made of glass! Never I will forget the rich Arabian ladies with bodyguards (equipped with automatic weapons), taking a jewelry for their own; nearby I saw a seagull, who killed a pigeon; and what made me smile? Watching my daughter, disappearing with her fresh husband in a nice hotel…
