The place where Xavier Parentheses and his friends hang out

Call me X.

      Everybody else does.

       Well, almost everybody else.

       There's my mom.  She calls me by my real name, Xavier.  Or when she's really mad, she calls me by my full name, Xavier Anthony Parentheses. But that's okay, 'cause she's my mom.

       Now, my teachers, what's with them?  I mean, my friends call me X, kids I hardly know call me X. Even some kids I don't even like call me X.    

       So, tell me, why can't teachers just call me X, too?  It doesn't make sense, if you ask me.

       Hey, wait a second.  Did you get permission from your mom, or dad, or grandma, or whoever it is that's supposed to be watching you right now, to check out this site?  You never know, there might be some bad ideas in here that they might not want you to hear about!  Next thing you know, you'll be in trouble, and they'll be blaming me.  And that won't be good for either one of us.  So, go ask for permission.  I'll wait here.

       Okay, now that we got that out of the way--hey, wait a minute!  That didn't take long enough.  You didn't really get permission to be online here, did you?  You were trying to fool me.  But I'm too smart for that.  Now, for real.  Go get permission.

       Yes, I'm serious.

       I'm not saying anything else until you do.

       Go.  I'll wait here.

 

       There, feels better to do things the right way, doesn't it?  Well, that's one of the things we learned in my first book, Xavier Parentheses' 162-1/2 Reasons to Hate Love School.  Catchy title, isn't it?  Hard to forget, right?

Well, even if it isn't hard to forget, the stories I have to share in this book are definitely hard to forget.

       So, what are you waiting for?  Go get a copy.

       Oh, you already bought it?  Cool.  Didn't you love the joke on page 73?  I sure did.  That Alex is the funniest guy I know.  Too bad he gets in trouble so much.  Anyway, what's your favorite part of the book?  You can tell me all about that here.

       See you soon!
