ABC Wednesday - X is for XX

X is for XX..........

I am really stretching it this week - after nine rounds, my "X" vocabulary has dwindled considerably.

My youngest will be turning twenty years old this year, leaving the teens behind to begin a new decade.

And to represent the number twenty in Roman Numerals, one uses the capital letter "X" two times.

Ten for each "X" equals twenty.

XX = 20.

Really stretching the X for this week, and I hope it qualifies!


This is the ninth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.


  1. Happy XXth birthday, son of yours!

  2. Oh no - sounds as though you are losing heart dear wonderful contributor! ABC without KML????? Tell me otherwise! What a journey we have travelled!!!!

  3. Oh no, my dear Denise - I shan't let a lowly "X" do me in!

    This is my favorite meme with the best group of contributors on the net.

    Onward we shall go!

  4. I'm sure XX qualifies. I saw greater stretches than this in some blogs. But X is a challenge no question. Can you believe it I just found my X for the next round today! I just hope I remember by the time we get there again and remembering might be a greater stretch than finding!

  5. Didn't think of roman numbers, but I should have thought about XXL, lol !

  6. It's amazing that all bloggers always find new X-words, isn't it?! I also have to do my best to find them! Well we managed, didn't we?!
    Have a wonderful new round!

  7. I think it qualifies - my youngest will be turning 21 in February - scary, scary thought...

  8. Kathy you are so persistent to continue the ABC ... Sorry I missed you for Christmas, and hope you had good one. Wishing you happy new year, good health, love and peace. Turning 20, wow that is big number, and I am sure the XX qualifies. Enjoy your new year, and happy blogging. Glad to see you around, many of us original are gone. Anna :)
