Fibbing Friday — Substitute Teacher

Frank (aka PCGuy) and Di (aka Pensitivity101) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. This week was actually Frank’s turn, but he’s been busy so Di stepped up to the plate, and she want to know…

1. Lucky dip is self explanatory when it comes to gifts, but how did it originate?

It’s not self-explanatory to me, as I don’t know what a lucky dip is. But if I had to guess, I’d say that going swimming in shark-infested waters and not getting bitten would be a lucky dip.

2. Why is seven considered a lucky number?

Because seven ate nine.

3. Why is thirteen considered unlucky?

Because it is the first year of being a teenager, which is a very awkward age.

4. Why do they say elephants never forget?

They’re wrong. Elephants never remember.

5. How did slippers get so called?

They are called slippers because when people wear them, they often slip and fall.

6. What are the doldrums?

They are dull drums.

7. Do igloos have central heating?

Most are heated with large chucks of dry ice, which are very hot to the touch.

8. What was a jamboree bag?

It was a bag filled with typical jamboree instruments, like banjos, accordions, harmonicas, and doldrums.

9. What were blackjacks?

They were — and still are — winning hands in a card game when you are dealt an ace and a jack.

10. Little Boy Blue blew what exactly?

Little Jack Horner while he sat in the corner sucking his thumb.

    I agree with number three… teen years were hard.
