How's Your Bell Ringing?

Since I got my Kindle, I've been reading books like it's my job.  My latest foray into fiction has been with Elizabeth McCracken's Niagra Falls All Over Again.  McCracken is the type of writer that spews truth about life and gives hidden insights into character, emotion and motive.  I was especially tickled by this line:

"The bell jangled when he left, same as it had when he walked in."

It made me think about my bell (heh, dirty) and how I want it to ring when I walk out.  Will it be the same?  Will it be a jingle or a CLANG?  Will it be a noticeable chime, or just a passing jangle?

Just a little something to think about for Friday.
