I don't like asparagus
My friend Jennifer thought I had posted about asparagus, but I hadn't. Here I am to change that! After that popular post about Brussels sprouts, I think I should start writing about vegetables more often. They really get people talking!
Anyway, I don't like asparagus, and I never have. I won't gag if I eat it, and if someone fixes it, I'll eat it to be polite (which I would NOT do with peas), but it has a weirdness about it. It tastes like it's built with floss and algae, and you have to tear through the stringy stalk for what reward? A dull flavor that sort of has an aftertaste.
Also, it broke my camera. That picture up there was the very last photo taken by my first DSLR, may he rest in peace. There was a click, an overly-long pause, and then an error message.
One more thing about asparagus is that my late grandma pronounced it like "asparagrus," with an extra r. One time we asked her about it and she thought it was a kind of grass and spelled A-S-P-A-R-A-G-R-A-S-S. We even had to show her the real spelling in the dictionary.
Doooooo youuuuuuu like asparagus?
(You can tell I'm very on task today. Well...I am if my task is to play Wii Frisbee Golf and discuss veggies.)
Stay-tuned for a photo tips post coming on Monday.
