Friday Five: Ding!

Friday, May 31, 2013
This week's Friday Five:
  1. When is ding a most welcome sound? When the doorbell rings because someone's delivered a package (I would say 75% of my shopping is done online these days). And when I receive a text message from someone I actually want to talk to. And when my convection oven is signalling that it has finished toasting/warming/cooking my food.
  2. When is ding a most unwelcome sound? When the doorbell rings because of any other reason than someone delivering a package to me. And when I receive a text from someone I don't want to talk to. And when my car makes that sound warning me that I'm running low on gas.
  3. If a ding could be heard only by you to warn you about something in social situations, what might that ding alert you to, and how many times do you think you'd have heard it this week? I would love to hear a ding when someone annoying or someone I dislike is nearby, so I can avoid them. I've been sick this week with some sort of flu so I actually haven't left my house in three days, but I would've heard it at least six or seven times this week.
  4. A Ding Dong is a hockey-puck-shaped chocolate cake-like dessert filled with cream and covered with chocolate. Its name is somewhat suggestive to some. What other food items have names that inspire you to think naughty thoughts? Twinkies, bananas, peaches, sticky buns, sausages or wieners, 'bangers and mash,' spotted dick, pound cake, ladyfingers, glazed doughnut, stuffing, whipped cream, taco... Yes, apparently, I have the mind of a prepubescent boy.
  5. What's an item in your possession that recently received a ding, and whose fault was it? A couple months ago, my friend was driving my car and accidentally drove over a pothole which caused a very large ding on one of my rims, which then lead to a whole bunch of other car-related issues/expenses...

  1. I've never heard of spotted dick until now. How very appetizing. O__o

    1. Loooool, the British do have some foul names for many of their dishes... Toad in a hole, anyone?
