A to Z on a Plate - X

Here it is, Day 24 of the Alphabet on a Plate in the AtoZ Challenge! We are nearing the finish line.  According to my calculations we have approximately two more days to go.

X marks the spot on a plate...
 
YEAH!  WAHOO! 
X-cellent!
I found a good one on March 28th....

Expressing Yourself

When you know what you want to say,
And then you really say it;
When people hear just want you mean
And wince when you convey it;

When you, my dear, articulate
Expressing honest feelings,
Then you, alone, are subject to 
The harshest of their dealings.

So think before you speak too much,
And temper what you're saying,
Or consequently, from your words
The piper you'll be paying.

    rain sizzles on hot car
    wipers sweep, expressive
