Have you ever ‘butt dialed” someone? (‘butt dialed’ means have you ever made a phone call that you weren’t aware of making, because the buttons on the phone got pushed by your sitting on them (in your pocket) OR having something in your handbag press against them?)
Not recently, I don’t keep my phone in my back pocket or my handbag and it won’t unlock unless it sees my face. But does this count as butt dialing?
One night many years ago when I still had a flip phone, a loud clunk woke me up in the middle of the night. Apparently, my arm had knocked the phone from the arm of the sofa-bed.
So I got out of bed and began blindly searching for it in the dark. Needing light but didn’t want to wake mom up, I crept to her side of the bed and grabbed her phone. I didn’t open the phone until I was under the bed. Though the phone didn’t have a flashlight function, the screen provided an adequate amount of light.
After 30 seconds though, the phone screen went dark, so I pressed a random button and suddenly, I could hear dial tone. I had accidentally dial her friend’s number in the middle of the night. Immediately, I slammed shut the phone, maybe a little too hard because my mom groaned. Still on my knees, I sat frozen for felt like a lifetime before tiptoed around the bed to put the phone in its place. Heart-pounding, I would have to search when the phone alarm sounds in the morning.
If you were given 1000 acres of land, what would you do with it?
I will mostly build a small to medium size city and then rent the buildings out, that way, I will have a constant income stream.
What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on-line recently?
I follow a blog called “Bluebird of Bitterness” and there’s always something funny on there.
Have you ever eaten something off the floor? ‘5 second’ rule applies or not (the ‘5 second rule’ is that if you pick up the dropped food within a set time frame, it’s still ‘clean’ and you can safely eat it)?
Maybe I’ve picked and eaten a grape from the floor? But I always wash it first before putting it in my mouth and it’s on the floor in the first place it’s because it fell when I pulled from the stem too hard. I would never do that with meat, vegetable, bananas, and other non-re-washable fruit. That will just be gross.

Thanks, Yinglan for Sharing Your World! That midnight adventure with the phone sounds a bit scary! I agree that leaving it until the morning was probably the wisest course of action! I too follow B.O.B. and find her blogs so funny! Eating food off the floor is fairly disgusting, but if one has a pet in the house, one rarely has the problem. Thanks again and have a great week!
