First Fibbing Friday of 2020

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyable New Year.

This week it’s my turn to host the first Fibbing Friday challenge of the New Year as I alternate with PCGuyIV.

As regular readers know, between us we have kept the Fibbing Friday challenge going and it is being very well received. Thank you all for your support and participation.
Below are 10 questions, the answers to which are entirely up to you.
The idea though is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly or even outrageous, in your response.

Write a post with your answers and tag it “Fibbing Friday” or #FibbingFriday, then link back to this post so that others can enjoy your answers and maybe join in too!
If you use WordPress, pingbacks are enabled, so as long as you link to this post, it should show up.
Bear in mind though that they are usually approved manually, so don’t be surprised if the link doesn’t show up immediately. You can also leave a link to your post in the comments.

Ready? Here we go…………………..

  1. It’s obvious what baked beans and baked potatoes are. But what is a baked Alaska?
  2. What is a TLA?
  3. What was boombangabang?
  4. How would you describe a cornice?
  5. Who will be on the back of the new £20 note when it comes into circulation in February?
  6. Where will you be able to buy sky hooks?
  7. If two’s company and three’s a crowd, what’s four?
  8. Why are squares on a checkers board alternately black and white?
  9. What happens to all the holes cut out of ring doughnuts?
  10. Why did the rabbit go up the hole, round the tree (right to left) and back down the hole?

I’ll be posting my porkies shortly.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Normally I try to reblog Di’s questions for Fibbing Friday as soon as I possibly can, but today got turned on its ear, so better late than never!

        All is well. I had a regularly scheduled appointment with the doctor in the morning, which meant I was going to have to post sometime after that. No big deal. But Thursday night, a tooth that I had suspected of needing treatment, but had been putting off, decided to shatter. Admittedly, it was not comfortable, but it wasn’t really as painful as it sounds. I was having more of an issue with what I thought was a sinus infection, but ended up being an issue with a previously treated tooth that never got properly crowned. So, I ended up in the dentist’s chair getting the remains of uncrowned tooth, now too far gone to save, removed, and stage 1 of a root canal and crown done on the newly broken tooth, rather than back at home, enjoying my day off, and doing fun things like responding to Fibbing Friday. I then spent the rest of the day either at the pharmacy getting prescriptions filled, or asleep due to pain meds. Fortunately, this morning, I’m not feeling nearly as bad, and simple ibuprofen seems to be handling what residual discomfort there still is from the extraction and root canal.

      • I;d rather have migraine than toothache. I have a crown that is over 30 years old that is being monitored, as is the tooth next to it. We had to postpone our appointments in November because of ‘Dick’ and so our check ups are now in February. Paracetamol works for me for pain relief, and was all I needed after my surgery in October.
