For this week's Fun Monday assignment our host, Ari at A Prawn of Fate has asked "What is the most beautiful sound in the whole world? Once you've told us that, give us the flip side, too: What is the sound you dislike the most?"
The sound of my grandchildren playing is a wonderful sound and surely one of the most beautiful in the world. This video stars two of my three lovely grandkids.
One of the sounds that I dislike is the breaking of glass. Breaking glass indicates something has been damaged whether that is a glass falling to the floor at home, a beaker being knocked over on a lab table at school, or a headlight being broken in an automobile crash. The sound then is followed by the necessary cleanup. If I am the one cleaning up the glass, I worry that I might miss a piece. In turn, I neurotically worry that someone might step on the broken glass.
