Asparagus

I don't like asparagus. Maybe it's because of the bad Green Giant canned asparagus I ate as a kid. Or maybe not. I just know I don't like asparagus. I avoid eating it  whenever possible.

In spite of my open aversion to asparagus, I have no respect for the people who  say they don't like to eat it because it makes their pee smell funny.

My objections are twofold:

  1. If you are a grown-up, no one can make you eat asparagus if you don't want to. You no longer have to make excuses to your mother or anyone else for not wanting to eat some yucky vegetable. Be an adult about it.

  2. Pee is not supposed to smell good anyway. It's pee. Abstaining from asparagus is not going to make it smell like roses

I see that you are a regular contributor to "NabloPoMo" -- a name that I misinterpreted because of the "post-modernism" suggestion. I've been in the opposite mode recently -- out of the posting business, and out of contact more or less, due to real-life interference in the past few weeks. That has just ended.

We have similar thinking on alarmism and other topics -- and moreover, your thinking tends to be detailed and articulate, so that even on topics where we disagree, you're interesting to read. I'm pleased to make your acquaintance.
