Word of the day 25th August

We have Melanie to thank for this little gem today
Nip on over and check it out:

In some cultures, when presented with a meal, you are expected to clear your plate.
In others, it is polite to leave a little on your plate as to clear it offends and your plate will be forever replenished as your host tries to satisfy your appetite.
Like Melanie, I was encouraged to eat everything on my plate as a child. My Dad often threatened to slap it on our necks as a poultice if we didn’t.
I’ve never heard of tittynope, and it makes you wonder how they came up with it.
I’m familiar with titbits (or tidbits), tough titty, and nope, you ain’t doin’ that though.

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! We have recently lost our beloved dog 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, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.

  1. Some cultures want you to belch after eating to show how much you appreciated the meal.

    We were always shamed and the guilt applied to remember the poor starving children in (pick the 3rd world country)…
