Last year the dollar tree had a candy cane game that you spinned and either got a real fruit tasting one or one that tasted like fish, stinky socks and other stuff. It was actually lots of fun to play at Christmas with my family. I’m going back to see if they have them again this year.
@tweezak We have some mint growing around a shed in the yard. Smells great when I run over some of it with the lawn mower. I used to grab a mint leaf and chew on it once in a while. Then one day I saw the dog peeing on it.
@macromeh I grew up on a “farm” that wasn’t actually a working farm but we had some animals and grew most of our own food. We had about 50 acres of timber and we heated with wood we cut from our own land. It was a very forested, rural area and wild mint grew was easy to find. My mom said we should rinse it before chewing it so I did. I don’t think it was dog-related but had something to do with something naturally on the leaves. Maybe it has a mild toxin to keep bugs from eating it. Not sure. Wiki doesn’t say anything bad about it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mentha_canadensis
@UncleVinny What age am I supposed to start getting my prosodical chuffed again? I don’t have any ostensible yearnings or yearning-like symptoms but I want to be safe and the last time I had an appointment didn’t work out…
I left because when I asked the doctor “where should I put my pants”, he said “over there next to mine” and passed me the mask he was huffing nitrous out of.
