X Marks The Spot

One day I stepped outside and looked up. There it was. A giant X filled the sky. The first thing I thought of was “X marks the spot.”

We’ve all said this at one time or another. But what does it actually mean? I looked it up at The Idiom Site.

X marks the spot:
A phrase that is said when someone finds something he/she has been looking for.

Okay, it’s time to share it.

  • When did you last say “X marks the spot?”
  • What did you find? I’m thinking more metaphysically, but feel free to tell us about finding someTHING you’d lost and suddenly found.
  • What would you like a giant “X”  to mark, making it easier for you to find?

None of the above?

You can’t come up with anything related to “X marks the spot?”  That’s okay; try this question on for size:

Why do jets leave white trails in the sky?  If you don’t know, guess and be creative:~)
