Five for 5/5

It’s Cinco de Mayo – and other than the historical significance of the day, it’s also fun just to say 5/5 (of course, it was even more fun last year when 5 (day) + 5 (month) = 10 (year), but I digress…).

So in honor of the fives, here are five categories of five items each that include the number five in their titles. I’d ask for a high five, but that’s a little difficult to do online. (Starred entries are highly recommended.)
