"X" marks the spot


Sadly, "X" is one of those letters that will make you have to get creative. Obviously you could translate it to an XXX date, but my grandmother reads this blog, so you won't find blogs about 50 shades of sexy times here [insert appropriate emoji here].

Believe it or not, there are options that don't include getting nekkid. For instance, you could go to a Shakespeare festival to see Taming of the Shrew (or you can watch the more modern take on the drama with the movie, 10 Things I hate about you). Essentially, the shrew is a xanthippe (pronounced san-thip-pee) which is basically a nagging housewife that can't be pleased.

If Shakespeare is a snoozefest for you, you could opt for a little treasure seeking in the form of geocaching. You get GPS coordinates for a location that you have to find, so it's like a modern day treasure map of sorts. You could opt to do this and camp out at a KOA campground, their sign basically incorporates a big "X." It should count right?

I feel like there should be loopholes with the letter "X" and you can use options that simply sound like it, with some bonus points if the letter is actually in the word. In this case, I would want to get a group of friends together to head down to Nashville for the Escape game. It's a simulator of sorts that requires you to work together with your group, in an effort to successfully exit or escape the scenario that you've chosen. The simulator is timed, which adds to the pressure. 60 minutes - I wonder if I could be in a group to escape? I'll be sure to let you know. 

What would be your "X"?
