• X - Xi

    X is for Xi

    #AtoZChallenge 2019 Tenth Anniversary blogging from A to Z challenge letter

    You know what Xi is, right? 
    I use that word at least once a day - sometimes twice!!!


    Now, to provide full disclosure ... I don't actually say that word in conversation, or write that word (except for just now) in my correspondence, or even stretch the truth by saying I could use that word in a sentence.  I couldn't even give you a definition until I looked it up ... just NOW.

    But use it, I have.

    I DO use the word - Xi - because ... wait for it ... I play 'Words With Friends!'  And thank God for the word Xi - because there aren't a bunch of words that begin with X - I know - because I looked them up for this challenge!

    Anyway - Xi - is the 14th letter of the Greek alphabet.  
    Thank you Greek people!

    What does that have to do with Retirement and Aging?

    I play a lot of word games now.  Keeping my brain engaged and flexible is one of the necessary "to-dos" of retirement - 'cause if you lose that organ's function - you can just pack it up and go home.

    So - 
    Yea - for Words With Friends
     and Yea for the Greeks. 
    You two gems are contributing to my mental well being as I age.

    PS - and Yea for A-to-Z,
    because without the challenge, 
    I wouldn't have bothered to look up the definition of Xi either!!!
