After Having Watched a News Piece About Asparagus Season
B: Did you know that if you can asparagus while you're having your period, the asparagus will go bad?
Me: Where did you get that idea?
Everyone knows that. Everyone I know.
That's nothing but an old wives' tale or something. How in the world would having your period make the canning go bad? How would the asparagus know something like that? It's asparagus.
I don't know, but it does. When you touch the asparagus or something. Your chemistry or something makes it go bad. It'll be spoiled.
That sounds ridiculous. Who would believe something like that? That menstruation would make canning go bad?
Just canning asparagus. But it's true. Ask my mom.
You want me to ask your mother? The same woman who went to the village witch to make the warts on her fingers go away?
And it worked! She went to the witch and then her warts disappeared! Everyone went to the village witch to have their skin problems cured!
Well then. There you go.
