Ancient Greek: oxus = sharp moros = dull

So the actual word “oxymoron” means a sharp dullness…which kinda seems like an oxymoron in itself.

The last few letters:

X-ray tube (what is that?!)
Yes Means No
Zero Deficit

Et Voila`! And that’s a wrap for finding oxymorons for the alphabet!
Readers’ all-time favorite was:
Required Donation (an obvious sign that I was doing these in September when school started up again).

We’re taking my daughter to college this week to start her freshman year; right now her room looks like an archeological dig. I’ve nagged her to clean it up for the last 18 years…so why does it suddenly seem so chaotically endearing?
