I’m back! Um… let’s leave it at that. I’ll just let all you faithful readers assume technical difficulties instead of technical laziness.
So… I’ve had names on my mind a lot lately, and, although there are no X names on our short list, I’ve come across quite a few. I figured that all those little Xaviers and, um, Xenas out there really needed something to relate to other than x-rays and xylophones. Doodle has a placemat with an entire animal alphabet on it, and what is the animal for x? An x-ray fish! What? Lame (no offense meant towards x-ray fish or lovers of said fish). Anyway, for obvious reasons, x should always stand for Xenopus! Coolest. Frog. Ever. I actually have a Xenopus. Believe it or not, my dad brought him home, as a tadpole, when I was five. This is a very old frog. I named him Astro.
