I'mn interested in the word-history of the 'five'. Is it the AP intensity level 5? the perfect food event? In these parts, one generally says '10' - originating from Olympic diving and gymnastic evaluation parlance?
yeah, it's like a ten. I think that the Very Best Prime Rib In the World is a 5.5, but that has only happened once for D. Five's are pretty much as good as it gets. Jamie Oliver just knows how to please my husband - luckily, I am smart enuf to have bought two of his lovely lovely books (the Italy and the Home ones, both awesome). So far.
