Blog Challenge "X"

It was my birthday yesterday, so I never got around to posting about the letter X.  So I'm posting about X now, and then Y a little later today.  No biggie, right?  :)

X is for: Xylopyrography


I'll tell you what xylopyrography is and what it is not.  It is not the act of setting fire to xylophones.  (I know.  Disappointing. . . )  Xylopyrography is a fancy word for wood burning.  It originated as making larger scale art with an actual hot poker, but it has evolved into the smaller, more practical version of wood burning you see today.

"Hey, Jeb. Did you see my xylopyrography when you rode in?"

Tara Tyler said...

@ Tara LOL. Yeah, one 'a them "smart" cowboys!

@ M.J. That's just a xylopyro . . . someone who burns xylophones. :) Jk, I don't know that.

Well, that's disappointing. I thought that it was going to be something to do with a circus! I think I much prefer the term "poker" because it makes me giggle every time I say it.
