Since Day 1 of this challenge I've been racking my brain, as well as my dictionary, for 'X' words.
I thought of 'xylophone' and I was going to dig around for an old picture of Lauren playing the xylophone which her granddad bought for her.
The obvious 'x-ray' came to mind, but there's not much I can write about that which is of any relevance to me or Kuantan.
Then there were fleeting thoughts of cheating slightly by using a word of which 'x' is not the first letter, as in 'excited' or 'axis'. But I'm not into worming my way around things.
A fellow blogger suggested 'X marks the spot' and I just visited a blog who used this as their title, and I did think for a while along those lines.
But deep down I still yearned for a great 'x' word to make my A-Z challenge complete. (I have 'y' and 'z' sorted!) That's when I googled "words beginning with 'x'" and happened upon this website:
Hence my word for today: xenodocheionology. And it means 'love of hotels'. Which is very pertinent for my life in Kuantan.
We have stayed in a number of hotels during the last 5 years.
I love to pay a bit extra for some additional quality.
It's not so much that I love having servants run around for me, but I do love the rare circumstance it provides to sit back and relax.
I love the plushy ambience, the cosy music playing placidly in the background.
I do love complimentary buffet breakfasts.
I love the night gowns in the room closet.
I love the feeling of 'getting away' from the speed of normal life.
I have a severe case of xenodocheionology.
