X Haiku #atozchallenge


There are few X words,

but thanks to Marie Curie

we all know this one

No, it’s not an X-rated haiku — sorry! It’s a little verse that suggests a word beginning with X. Can you figure it out? Let us know in the comments!

Today’s entry in the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

  1. So, I guessed x-ray, but looked up Marie Curie to learn a little more and WOW! What a lady that I know so little about. And talk about a tough family to impress. Five Nobel prize winners. How’d you like to come home for dinner in that family.

    “Oh, I won a Nobel today, this time in the field of physics.”
    “Would you be a dear and pick mine up when you swing by for yours? I got tied up in the lab with a new discovery in radioactivity and completely forgot to grab mine. I wonder if you might pass the mashed potatoes this way, thanks.”

  2. I was stumped for a minute trying to think what Marie Curie used that started with X. But I was trying to be too clever! Of course it’s an X-ray. One of my first published pieces of writing was about Marie Curie. I would have been about 7… Can you tell my mother was a science teacher?
