(You guys probably doubted my ability to come up with an X, oh ye of little faith)
This my friends, would be one of the first X-rays I took 10 years ago in X-ray school. No it’s not a real patient, this was a X-ray dummy. That would be an oblique view of your stomach. I do miss my medical stint, but alas it wasn’t meant to be. It looks funky because I taped it to the window- the webbing is the screen.
I was curious about X words in general and found a very interesting listing online. (thank you Google!) I thought I’d share with you some of the most interesting X words you’ll see today.
xanthippe- ill tempered woman
xenial- concerning hospitality towards guests
xenodochial- kind to strangers
xenium- a gift made to a guest
xenoglossia- a persons knowledge of a language never studied

xenomensia- menstruation from abnormal orifices ( I don’t think I even want to know)
