X is for Xenobombulate. A-Z Challenge Day 24.

malinger |məˈliNGgər|

Today will be a little different than normal posts.
Although it is not 'custom' for me to eXpress myself 
here other than in poetry,
I thought today needed just a little more 
eXplanation than any other day.
Today is election day in Iceland, 
so it is truly double X day for me.
And because there are very few (non medical ) X words in the dictionary
I decided to give me a little break and just 
pick words with X as a second letter.
If you think that is outrageous..
well, then you are just gonna have to keep thinking that!
I hope you enjoy todays post.

extravagantly exact.
