X is for Xbox

If you should be in any doubt as to what an Xbox is, look no further than here. According to the authorities (my son), it is Microsoft's gift to homo ludens.


Anyone with teenagers around the house will have no problem in recognizing the importance of this interpretation of the word X. There are many game consoles around, but according to the same authorities, this one (Xbox 360) is the one to beat.

I myself cannot say - I never made it past Mine sweeper.

Minesweeper - you're way ahead of me. I'm still thinking about Pong.

I'm back to say that I'd always heard colds last about ten days. Now I'm feeling better to learn the saying about 9. By that count I'm on the last day of it staying and tomorrow it'll be going. Whew. Hope yours is on the way out already.

If I had one I wouldn't know what to do with it. I'm glad my kids are grown!

I'm not much for computer games either!
Great X idea though!

X box....didn't think of that but I don't have one anyway. I am just not an X person. X was very hard for me. Sad we only have two more Wednesday's then we will be out of ABC's.

X Box. Great idea! We never got one, thank goodness. I get too addicted to games and my teenager would have lost possession in no time.

I recognize that we don't own one...only because our sons(who are older, too) are into World of Warcraft on the computer...now there's something for your teenager to see! this is a very good "X"! and I am with Annie....I never mastered Pong!!! My age is showing!

Great idea for X box. X is very hard to find photos to match with.
