This afternoon Elder Son came bearing gifts from his first Garden.
Some absolutely gorgeous Brandywine tomatoes and one little Habanero.
I was making some vinegar with Tabasco peppers, like the stuff you get
in a bottle at some restaurants, and was nibbling on them. He issued
I took a tiny nibble of the blossom end and it was not hot at all. He
nipped a bit further up and went red and sweaty. I should have known
better and just backed away from the challenge.
I took a nip from a little higher, got some rib meat and chewed away.
My mouth exploded in pain and apparently shut my brain down for a
couple of seconds. When Mr Brain came to it's senses, it screamed "THE
FOOL SET HIS HEAD ON FIRE!!!" It turned loose gallons of water from my
forehead, in an attempt to extinguish the blaze, instructed the adrenal
gland to pour it's load, but I couldn't run, because my eyes were
working on sending streams towards my mouth. I guess my lungs didn't
want to fan the flames 'cause they shut down momentarily.
I never had such a load of endorphins kick in.....had to sit for a
while. I think I momentarily reached Nirvana.
OMG.......they have the nerve to illegalize certain herbs and drugs and
yet they allow fools like me to play with Habaneros?
Eff me.........Never Again!
