I d’ohn’t like it – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Dough/d’oh

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 30/19

***

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “dough/d’oh.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

Today’s prompt words are dough and d’oh. Thanks, Linda!

First of all, I can’t stand the use of the word or sound made when you say d’oh. I just cringe when I see it or hear it. When did it change from ‘duh’ to d’oh? Was it the Simpsons cartoon? I watched a few of them, and didn’t see anything funny about them. Guess that’s just not my kind of humor at all, so I never watched any more of them.

Blechhhh, I can’t keep that sound out of my head, now. Stop!!!

So, on to dough. Dough is good. I make dough in cooking, sometimes. Pie dough, cookie dough…but I really don’t make any of that any more either. I’m not supposed to eat pies or cookies, though I’ll take a bite now and again. So, no making a big bunch with dough, for me any more.

Dough is used as an alternative word for money, I think. I’ve never actually said this much. I’d more likely to say ‘moo-lah’. Haha that sounds dumb, but we’ve called money that a lot of times. There’s lots of other words to describe money…such as scratch. I don’t know why, as it sounds silly, too. My mister uses this one a lot.

I don’t like using the word ‘hun-doh’ or hundo? instead of saying a hundred for a hundred dollars, either. I hear them say that on some TV shows. Just say the price is a hundred, not a hundo!

Well, so far all I’ve done is complain about words I don’t like, or don’t use. hmmm…is there anything good to say about the prompt words?

Nope.

I will say I appreciate that Linda G. Hill thinks up these fun challenges every week. It’s fun to see where it leads with everyone’s different thoughts on whatever is presented.

Why not join in with the SOCS crew! It’s fun and easy…just click the above link to see how, and read other entries. Then write your own thoughts so we can read them. It won’t bring in any dough, but you get to meet a bunch of friendly people! 🙂

Happy weekend!

  1. I had never put “duh” and “d’oh” together before, but saw someone else do it not that long ago and it made me realize they do kinda have the same meaning… “Oh, how stupid I am!” But I think the connotation is a bit different… “duh” is more of a mocking gesture towards yourself, while “d’oh” is more the kind of thing you say when you’re upset with yourself for being an idiot. Or maybe it’s the association of Homer with that word that makes me think that…

    • Good way to think about those two words, and keep their meanings a bit separate. Or I use duh when someone states some kind of fact, or even myself when I say something I think everyone should already know, instead of saying – yes, you’re right. haha. 🙂
