As part of the admission procedure in the hospital where I work, I
ask the patients if they are allergic to anything. If they are, I
print it on an allergy band placed on the patient's wrists.
Once when I asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she
said she couldn't eat bananas. Imagine my surprise when several
hours later a very irate son came out to the nurses' station
demanding, "Who's responsible for labeling my mother 'bananas'?"
Then there was the little boy who when asked if he had any allergies, stuff he can't have, whispered in the doc's ear.
Later he went home sporting an orange bracelet which had on it, in big black letters: "ALLERGIC TO: BROCCOLI, SPINACH"
black letters: "ALLERGIC TO: BROCCOLI, SPINACH"I think he and I have the same condition. <G>
Apparently as a baby, I couldn't get enough of peas!
Even garden peas! Found out recently I'm not too fond of the English ones, even raw! (more or less like Lima Beans in a pod made of wool)
Asparagus doesn't cut the muster, though -- don't like it in any form, even raw.

stuff in a greenhouse, with wires in it, so it could grow. He'd always check it at sunrise...so "This is the dawning of the cage of asparagus". <G>
I love that soundtrack -- have had it on LP for many years now. .It was from the musical "Hair", with "Good Morning, Starshine". The
church I was with 55 years ago, did several songs part of the deal,
including Sheb Wooley's hit "The Purple People Eater".
And, if the Pontiff has eye surgery, requiring a patch...then sounds
the beeper on his Pope-Mobile that flies around, and has overdone it
on the grapes and wine, would he be "The One Eyed, One Horned, Flying
Purple Papal Leader"?? <G>
Sometimes, we wonder what happened to the weather stripping on the
Canadian border. <G> But, our big winter snows are usually late in
January, and during February...like it was last year.
