Tags: choking, vegetables are dangerous
It’s a good thing I can’t grow vegetables. Because they’re dangerous. Proceed with caution.
The other day, I was chewing on a carrot. When, all of a sudden, the carrot split in multiple pieces and I started choking.
And then, not too long ago, same thing, but with celery. Those slippery little suckers, with their strings that get caught in your throat. Total choking hazard.
I tried to grow vegetables. My husband even built me a special raised garden with a rabbit-proof fence. We brought in soil. We tilled the soil. We planted. We fertilized.
And then I took over the tending of the vegetable plants.
I bought extra chicken manure. The more manure, the merrier. Right?
I killed every one of those plants. It was too much nitrogen. But it’s a good thing. Because danger was growing.
For the record, I have never ever choked on a cupcake.
