Wow, I stink.

Well, I just got done frying up a big mess of ramps that I plan on eating over the weekend and, boy howdy, do I smell like the little stinkers. It probably doesn't help any that I kept eating them in every stage of preparation, from raw to perfectly fried.

Oh snap, I forgot that I have to go to a function tomorrow. What do I do?

1) I could put on patchouli, eat mints, smoke a few cigars, drink apple cider vinegar, shower in imported rose water from France, and try to cover it up


2) I can do what any self-respecting West Virginian would do: wear it as a badge of pride. If they don't like it, there is a big river right over yonder that they can swim across until the stink dies down.

Have a good weekend, everyone, especially if your going to a ramp dinner.

That smell comes out your pores, too. Whew...

For some reason, people always told be peanut butter would mask the smell. Not smearing it on, mind you, but eating it. I never tried it, but...

Oh! Is it ramp time already? I know where a patch grows near my house. I should go out there and grab some.

Grab them now before they start to flower.

Mmmmm, ramps! Must really be spring despite the frigid wind!

Maybe Ben and Jerry's (not smearing it on, mind you, but eating it ;-) would help cover the smell. Certainly worth a try!

I bet a sizable donation to their favorite charity could get ramp ice cream made.

If I can make the jump from upper-lower-middle class to lower-middle-upper class, I'll get my checkbook.
