Yes—you read correctly. Have any of you out there ever heard of people not wanting to eat others’ chili, spaghetti or other tomato based dishes because folklore has it that women used to put their….well….um…..period blood in their food to try to lure a man?
I hadn’t ever heard of that until the last few years. I try to share my cooking and my awesome food with my friends, and ONE IN PARTICULAR (ahem….Jakki) won’t eat my tomato based stuff---AS IF I’m going to wipe up a loogy-like ball of YUK and put it into my FOOD!!! No way!!
Which brings me to my whole host of issues I have with sharing the space with THE PUBLIC.
Tonight we have the annual Spaghetti dinner to raise money for the Jays Football Booster club. Volunteers cook it, and the football boys serve it up. All for $8.00.
There’s salad, bread and Spaghetti……and, I’m quite fearful, swine flu, period blood and sweat from the boy’s. They are coming over from weightlifting to serve (that’s what I’ve been told). Even if they shower in the public shower…..still…..EWWWWWW.
Oh, and let’s not forget MRSA…..the flesh eating bacteria.
So, does anyone out there want to join us? The booster club will REALLY appreciate your donation!
Seriously, though….has anyone ever heard of that ‘old wives’ tale?? I apparently need to brush up on my folklore so this sort of thing doesn’t publicly take me aback.
I plan on stopping by the store to pick up a few medical masks and some double thickness disposable gloves. If they won’t wear them, I will!!
