X is for...eXtra

I know extra doesn't start with the letter X, but hey, ya gotta do what ya gotta do!

We live in a world of extra's don't we! Whether it is extra butter on your popcorn at the movie's, or extra cheese on your hamburger at your local fast food restaurant, extra's are everywhere, you can't get away from them. 

You can get extra minutes on your cell phone, extra time on a payment plan, you can even get extra extra's on your new car.  Anywhere you look you find extra's.

I even found a British television program called Extras.  It is a sitcom about extras working on film sets and in theatre.  It was co-produced by the BBC and HBO, and is created, written and produced by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant, both of whom star in it. 

There is also a movie called The Extra (2005) starring no one I know or recognize.  The plot is about a simplistic bloke with innocent eyes who sees movie stars getting money and girls, and says, why not me? It is only a 4.3 out of 10 stars...and no I have never seen it. 

My point is everywhere you look, you can find an extra of some sort or another.  It is kind of like super sizing it at certain fast food places.  I mean you can ask for extra time on a court case, extra miles on your rental car, and even extra pillows for your bed at the bed and breakfast you are staying at.  I myself have a set of extra deep pocket sheets for my extra deep pillow top mattress, extra long pillow cases for my queen sized pillow and extra channels for my cable box.

So now I can have extra butter on my popcorn, while laying on my extra deep pillow top mattress, watching my extra channels and snuggling back against my queen size pillow with the extra long pillow case.  I will be holding my extra special puppies and watching something or another with my extra special sweetie as well. 

Now go on over to extra special Arlee @tossing it out and find some extra special people to comment on!

Sometimes I wish I would get charged less for things and not have all the extras --- often the extra is something I don't really need or never am able to use.

Yes I agree with Lee. Sometimes I don't want the extras. Your post reminded me that the extras also reminds us of how blessed we are.
