X. Dr Xing

It could be a bit extreme, but I suspect Doctor Xing will be prescribing more Xanax to treat depression in Gen X. Many of that generation are exhausted by tying to learn to play the xylophone; some even wanted to travel to Xanadu for extra lessons! Most people would just use the Xerox to copy the instructions rather than travel exhausting amounts of kilometres to somewhere on the map where “x” marks the spot. That’s a bit exaggerated don’t you think?

Just between you and me, Doctor Xing is a little strange, he signs his prescriptions with an inexact ‘x’.

A Drabble is a story told in 100 words. No more, no less.
This Drabble in no way represents any person I know and I trust that anyone with a similar name will accept the words in a lighthearted way. I had to find something to fit with X and am scraping the bottom of my brain barrel here - I have a deep and long lasting respect for my Chinese friends, workmates and neighbours.

Here tomorrow: Yolanda's yacht

Over at traverselife, I'm spending the month looking at different aspects of bullying.

I never heard of these 100 word stories before. Thanks for introducing me to the concept. It sounds interesting to try.

I hadn't come across Zanox before, otherwise we seem to have had similar thoughts.

Pam, be warned, they're addictive. But by golly they've improved my writing ...I think ;)
Baygirl, ergh, it was a bit of a stretch, I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone else managed
Bob, ah ha, good on you. I'll pop over asap

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, fabulous! I think Dr. Xing is a prime example of the current philosophy of Drs. everywhere...

Some of my relatives sign their name with X's too. Actually kidding but close. I've notice a lot of people dropping out but we've only got 2 to go. It's been fun, hasn't it?

Roberto said...

Alliteration, in all it's forms, isn't as easy as some people think, is it? 'X' was a hard one - and I was eXcited to see your post.
However, I thought, with your eXtra effort, you did eXtremely well, and it was worth the eXertion.

sue said...

Hart, I understand the inability to write clearly is crucial in the medical profession ;)
Manzanita, oh gosh, I hadn't thought of that. I didn't mean to offend anyone. Anyone who's been reading my posts consistently will know how passionate I am about the rights of people who haven't been taught properly. And if anyone drops in and makes a snap judgement, ah well, silly them. I've almost got the champers on ice! WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!
Roberto, New thumbnail! nice. Thanks heaps, wish I'd thought of presenting the words like you did, that looks better. Are you tempted for next year?

Nearly party time :D
Toast everyone!
and not for THAT wedding, but for all of us and the fantabulous people who've supported and commented and provided encouragement. I wasn't sure I could do it, but here I am, befuddled, with a brain like mush, but pretty pleased with myself.

Roberto said...

dear Sue - Ha - no way, José! I have enough troubles with the 30+ blogs I have now! Nice thought, though.
I'd rather read your excellent efforts, than try to eviscerate mine from a dessicated depot of delirium - namely, my imagination.
Keep going, kiddo! Love your stuff!

sue said...

ah Roberto, I needed that laugh! You've got a way with words that I don't usually see. Thanks heaps! Hope you're enjoying great weather up there, it's amazing here for the moment and I'm trying to close this computer and head out to enjoy it before the rain appears.

Cool that you did drabbles throughout the challenge. The X would have provided a bit of a challenge.

sue said...

JLC, you're not wrong there!
