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:~)
