I went for lunch yesterday with my French class. Our teacher (with a little help from her husband) made us a truly lovely meal. The bar has been raised! One of the vegetables with our lunch was asparagus - yum! I LOVE asparagus!!! For me, asparagus is definitely a "Spring Thing". Easter dinner is often ham with asparagus, and you know - the other stuff, the "fillers". I'm not quite sure where it was that we had run into asparagus before, I think that it was probably at a Lunch Causerie (Lunch'n'Learn) at work. The first time, I had had a brief conversation with a couple of my classmates about the effect that asparagus has on the odor of your... uhm... well... pee... They had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. When son the younger was still in diapers, I used to warn the daycare ladies that he had eaten asparagus for dinner since the already funky diapers would be more so that day after.
Encountering asparagus yet again, I raised this rather interesting phenomenom again. I was still met with blank stares... In an effort to confirm my "Super Geek" status, I came home and did a little searching on the net and found this for them. My quest to educate the masses on the oddities of nature continues...
