“All Fungi are edible.
Some fungi are only edible once.”
― Terry Pratchett
From my blog (I called it an “Online Journal” then), The Daily Epiphany, Sunday, May 12, 2002.
Everything was warm and wet and near the end of my walk I came across a field of mushrooms. I’ve always wanted to be able to tell poison fungi from delicious. It would be so cool to be able to go out to a field and pick a few, carry them home and make an omelet. I picked one out and put it in my pocket – to take home for no particular reason. I thought of Lee and how he is always picking up rocks, feathers, old bones, or anything else useless to haul around and pile in old shoeboxes.
I know where he gets that from.
And a piece of flash fiction for today:
So not all edibles are fungible.
(I’ll see myself out…)
That is so bad. I always think of the best science fair project – moldy bread… called “The Fungus Amongus”
And don’t forget putting a fingerprint in a petri dish filled with jello, then tucking it into the dark closet until the mold begins to form!
