I usually don't talk about my ex husband on my blog but somehow this struck me. I love cooking and have been my hole life, and I taught my ex husband the how's and what's and who's of cooking.
There was a trick that my mom taught me about cucumbers that if you have a bitter one, you cut the tip off and rub it in circles on the end and a milk white substance comes out which eliminates the bitterness. He mocked me and made me believe that it was a fallacy, and I actually believed him and stopped doing it. I just read a farmers post on Twitter mentioning this trick and that it works.
I guess the point of this story, don't let the unknowing and blind lead you down their false and unknowing beliefs.
