Seriously? Well alright then, if I have to. Can I use a lifeline? Make a call perhaps? Check in with the Cyber-Land Audience? Maybe I should wait until tomorrow… see if someone else doing the challenge has some novel idea that could perhaps spark my own inner creationism. Well, no I wouldn’t do that. Shucks, then I guess I will just have to muddle through the land of “X” as best I can.
“X” as a letter is rather peculiar isn’t it? It’s always hiding. Like it’s playing some perpetual form of hide and go seek, or perhaps manhunt. Find “X,” well… what If I choose not to do so. What if, instead I just let him stay hidden and say to hell with him. He is 11, and that’s all there is to it.
Then there is the constant speaking of people “X’s.” I hate my X. I saw my X. My X is an asshole. You know what I mean. In this particular case “X” gets a dreadful rap since it’s really Ex. Humans are lazy though so poor Mr. X takes the blame once again. I feel bad for him and all. Unfortunately, there isn’t much I can do for him. He’s been relegated to signify some loser, dirtbag, whore person with delusions of adequacy.
There are some positives for “X” though. X-Factor, X-men, this stems from the evil math problems with its elusive and unexplainable X problems, but in these cases at least it’s so much more fun! So it gets used to explain away the unexplainable that always elusive and mysterious X factor that makes everything happen. Especially in Comic Books!
Then of course Mr. “X” gets a great bit of mystery with the always fun and exciting X marks the spot. Pirates have used this for years to mark their most important treasures on a map. Who Wouldn’t want to be a Pirate? Well maybe a Ninja but still, even Ninja’s wanted to be something really cool when they grow up.
There you are… “X” the elusive, repulsive, mysterious and treasured letter of the Alphabet.
"Whatever you do, don´t stop writing, write only for yourself if that´s what you want". It might sound as nothing, but in a time in which I doubted so much about myself, it meant the world for me.
