Pee In The Shower

There are certain things that happen as part of a routine when most folks awaken. A cup of coffee, urination, brushing teeth, taking a shower… Some folks choose to combine two of these, the morning pee and the shower, into one. There have been television sit-coms (Seinfeld and more) that have brought up the “issue”. And guys will proclaim that it is their God-given right to do so. (There are plenty of women who pee in the shower, too.) It’s a divisive subject, to be sure. Some will be grossed out by the thought while others see it as a time and water saving activity. So… do you pee in the shower?

Asparagus Jones

I enjoy asparagus. I like it steamed as a side, chopped up in a stir fry, pickled as a munchie, marinated and more. However, I had never even heard of fried asparagus. And this is somewhat perplexing as Ihave lived almost my entire life in Texas… where we will fry and eat just about anything after it has been deep fried. So imagine my surprise when I was at a restaurant in rural Southern Illinois and saw fried asparagus on the menu. I immediately ordered it and was munching away in short order with an evil grin on my face. Last night, I made up some beer batter (traditional Easter fare, eh?) and dressed the asparagus. Dunked them in the fryer until they were golden, sprinkled some salt, served them with some sides of bleu cheese dressing, horseradish cream and ranch dressing. Several pounds of asparagus were immediately pillaged by the gathered minions. The bodily effects were noticed within 15 minutes.
