One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A child's word for dinner.
- ‘And then The Boy and The Sonia came around for din-dins and to be scratched to death by the cat… and to bring us some rather fancy, swivelly office chairs that their work was throwing out (even though they're perfectly fine).’
- ‘My old man pines if i'm not home by five to fix his din-din.’
- ‘I gotta run as soon as din-din's over… didn't have time for a shopping trip!’
- ‘Dusty seemed as exhausted and disinterested as an 11-month-old thinking of din-din.’
- ‘Maybe he'll suggest a post-bash din-din.’
- ‘Did you make it home in time for din-dins?’
- ‘He reinforced that ‘This really helps my preparation because I can now go nighty-night after din-din.’’
- ‘Technique aside, the resulting din-din is on a plane above how I imagined food could taste.’
- ‘So, I made all the mixings and mash, and served up the din-din!’
- ‘Is it time for din-dins yet?’
- ‘‘Daddy said to give it you, and then hurry home, ‘cause it's time for my bath and din-dins.’’
