So Brando's mom went to Sams Club and part of what he bought was a huge bushel of blueberries (and one of strawberries). Brando was rinsing the berries at the sink and put them in a bowl to store in the fridge. His mom came up and said he didn't wash them right and set out a strainer in the sink, took the bowl of blueberries and filled it with warm water then proceeded to add dish soap to the bowl and washed the berries in dish-soap water then rinsed them in cold water in the strainer then put the berries back in the bowl that had previously been filled with dish soap.

Apparently this is how all of the berries we've ever eaten where washed.


I rinsed the blueberries in the strainer like....5 more times before I felt comfortable eating them.

I'm second oldest. I have an older brother and two younger brothers. My youngest brother will be 18 in November. Time flies....

These two girls got married today at the costume ball at grad school. They were surrounded by children's book authors in masks and wings and stuff. (I was Eris, Goddess of Discord.)
We happened to have a lady who was an ordained minister.
One of the girls was in the program with me, and this was her graduating semester.
I didn't even know her and I cried.

Yay for Vermont!

Also yes.

Brando and I just exchanged shocked glances and looked around awkwardly.

Not gonna lie, kinda grossed me out thinking about the various small berries I've consumed that where coated in a fine residue of dish soap.

There was a pitcher I was going to use to make iced tea soaking with soapy water and while I was making dinner, I went to drain the water from the pot I cooked the vegetables in and I came really close to getting the soap on my vegetables.

That's so wrong.... like does she realize she's replacing inedible chemicals with MORE inedible chemicals?

Wait.... Brando's mom... lemme recant that...

It's just really strange because she's so against a lot of commonly used safe products that it kinda took us by surprise.

Like this is the woman who said that no one needs vaccinations ever and they make you sick. So i wouldn't have expected her to be washing her food in dish soap.
