"X" Is For Xiphoid Process

Xiphoid process is one of the only words I remember from 10th grade biology. It is the bone that makes up the tip of the sternum. Didn't even have to Google that biotch! Still remembered. That's probably the only one I got right on the human anatomy test we took. Biology isn't my ace in the hole. And speaking of Xiphoid processes: I've had it about up to my Xiphoid process with April already. Make it May.

They told us that if we were laying down and the xiphoid process was broken, it would fall into the heart and kill you.

I totally don't remember this either. I blame the boys in my biology class and their excellent jeans.

Just sayin'

Wow. That's awesome. I remember The Ampuli of Lorenzini. I think they're sensory things on a shark's face somewhere, right? I remember thinking how stinkin' funny that name was. That's all I remember from Biology. :)

I have been waiting for "x"! I knew you wouldn't do x-ray and you did not disappoint. Oh, Mr. Geiger.

I never remember the terms but I can still recite all the processes and definitions.
