Our putting an x after a letter to symbolize a kiss came from a medieval practice.  In order to indicate good faith and honesty, the sign of Saint Andrew was placed after the signature on all important documents.  The sign is like the letter x. 
Contracts and agreements were not binding without this symbol. Then the person was required to kiss it.  Over the centuries the good faith and honesty has been forgotten.

Woolgathering is something I did when I was younger, now that I’m older my engine never idles.
