X is for Xiphoid

Xiphoid means "engraving on wood." There is nothing I could find for X that even remotely relates to my theme, so today, just enjoy the word Xiphoid!

It also means sword shaped from the Greek for a sword.

Yes, funny how these odd words can have such diverse meanings. Frankly I think they are just making them up :)

Well, a new word I've never heard of works for me. X was a tough one!

Great word, Melissa.

And I'm so sorry I've missed almost all of your posts! They weren't showing up in my blog feed :-(

I'm going a-reading!

A quick return to tell you that both your books have arrived. Haven't had time to read them with the Challenge and a new novel published. But, I have them in my 'looking forward to this pile of books.'

You cracked me up with that. It think it would make me run because it kind of sounds like some kind of bad skin condition. Thanks for coming by!
