Good girl, Sylvia 🙂
I am wracking my brain trying to figure our what those are!! Something sweet? Off shaped sugar cubes? Doughnut holes of some kind? *tummy grumbles*
Treats for donkeys and horses, maybe? Or friends of dentists’ bank balances?
Ahhh that could be!!! Some kind of raw sugar treat for horses. Oh to be a horse…
Most definitely 🙂
Just teasing anyone here who has a sweet tooth. I love cakes and puddings, but absolutely hate sugary drinks D:
Sweet tooth? Oh dear…that’s me 😀
It made me think a bit. I had to decide are these chunks of angel’s food cake mixed with cubes of gingerbread. You can see the direction my mind goes! ha ha! Even little croutons…. This was not a wordless Wed. since I had to respond. Happy rest of the week to you, Sarah.
It’s wordless Wednesday that invites comment, the more the merrier! Oooo, I do like croutons, especially garlic ones. Happy rest of the week to you, too, Robin. Will be over to visit your blog in the next day or two. Life is rather busy just now. Plus, I’m being very disciplined about revising a novel — two hours work on it each day, before I do anything else, otherwise I get sidetracked.
great responses!! A brilliant what the heck is it image Sarah!!
I hadn’t imagined it looking like anything other than what it is, so I’ve very much enjoyed everyone’s guesses!
Sweet! I’d guess sugar lumps for coffee…although they do sort of resemble the bread pills the cousins and I used to make at the extended family dinners!
“Bread pills” — not familiar with them in the UK, unless it’s your name for croutons. I love all the variances of language for everyday things, from across the Pond.
Yes, they are sugar lumps for coffee, not that I drink coffee or like sweet drinks but, as a child, I used to suck on sugar lumps (that was before I associated such habits with the discomforts of dental work).
Bread pills usually happen when someone is finished with dinner, but etiquette requires that person to stay seated, even when bored or uncomfortable with the conversation and/or company. That is when leftover bits of bread are shaped, like tiny bits of Play Dough into little pills by nervous fingers, often in one’s lap, hidden by the draping edge of the tablecloth.
What an excellent idea. I hate to sound old-fashioned, but many young people these days are not taught such etiquette, let alone families sitting around a table to eat meals together and share conversation with one another.
That, unfortunately, is too often true. Nowadays it would be the cell phone held discreetly under the sight line of the table surface.
Now that’s an addiction, definitely. I’ve been in restaurants where whole families ignore each other and are glued to their phones, typing out text messages whilst eating. That is so sad D:
It really is sad. When Bea went to college we offered to get her a Smart Phone, but she didn’t want one. She said she didn’t want to be so tied and dependent upon a piece of technology. So she and I have dumb phones and are very happy with them. Eli puts his to great use, however. When he left, I don’t know if I missed him or his phone GPS more (just kidding!). So I also appreciate the many uses of phone technology, but not when it eclipses basic good manners.
