X-rays that show I have no cavities. I opt to do these every other year or so now since I don't have dental insurance and never have cavities, but it's always a relief when they come back showing none.
Xerox: It makes life a little more convenient.
Xacto Knife: They come in handy.
Hmm...not a very impressive list, but the best I can do with the letter X.
My favorite lunch spot, the Soup Kitchen, seems as if it may become my latest free dating service. Last week the owner Pete asked me if I'm dating anyone and how old I am, so we all know where he was going with that. He then proceeds to tell me about this guy ("Sal") he's met recently who is very conscientious and nice, and "if looks matter to you, let me tell you--he's a hunk." Note: this entire conversation took place right beside the table where Mr. Regular sat. Pete said that Sal might be stopping by later that day, so maybe I'd get to meet him before I finished my lunch. I am, of course, blushing throughout this and laughing. When you're as fair as me it doesn't take much to blush.
Despite my friend Grace's suggestion that we prolong our lunch to ensure my meeting of Sal, we did not witness the "hunk."
Fast forward to Friday when I'm dining at the Soup Kitchen (again) with my friend Beth. Owner Pete comes by our table and says he wants to introduce me to someone--Sal's sister who assures me that not only is her brother beautiful on the outside, he's even more beautiful on the inside. Beth hears the guy's name and tells me she thinks he is very cute too. Anyway, the sister hits me up for my number, so I give her my card.
Today Pete told me that one day I'm going to come in when Sal is there and that the place is going to blow up from the fireworks. You gotta love older people. They meet two younger single people that they think are attractive, and voila, there's an explosive match. Finally Pete's wife chimed in, noting that a bad match could result in them losing a very regular customer:) After all, I'm averaging lunch there about 3 or 4 times a week now. And thanks to my new e-trainer, I'm going to start averaging a three mile run and weights the same number of times a week (no more slacking with my 25 or less minute visits to the gym).
