X is for ...

Lately, I have been accused of being an xanthippe.
I've come to believe though that it is more beneficial to be xenodochial.

I suffer often from xerophthalmia.

Every so often I see a xiphosuran by the house.
I've never seen a xeme, although you'd think that is odd, considering where I live it is actually more likely I would see a xebec.

I also recently saw a xenurine on the side of the road, but I couldn't tell you exactly what it was, it was quite an unflattering pose, probably for [this] book.  But I was delighted to see this live young'n while on a Sunday drive.
Channeling Robert DeNiro ... "You lookin' at me?"
One day I would like to have an outdoor xystus,
surrounded by xerophyllum.
I think I would enjoy that.
