I should really be ashamed of this... See, back a couple of years ago I thought maybe I'd learn how to cook.

*squint*

It looks like spaghetti is growing out of a bag of carrots.

Polly P.I. said...

Onions, Mike. Albino onions because they have been sired in the dark recesses of my refrigerator.

Aside from the fact that they shouldn't have been in the fridge....that's really quite the experiment you've got going there.

NEVER leave onions to their own devices ... cooking 101.

Or maybe it's "never leave men to their own devices"... cooking 101.

Yeah ... that's it. Men. Not onions.

Sorry. Carry on.

Marie said...

Polly, don't feel bad now. I have my onions and potatoes sprout all the time.

I'm so bad at cooking that in the end what I do is open a can of sardines and make myself a sandwich.

Really now. You can't possibly be as bad at cooking as me.

Polly P.I. said...

LOL! Good grief...I've never resorted to sardines, Marie!

Sherri said...

I think you have created a lovely botanical garden there -- and green onions chop up just fine in salads...just sprout a few cloves of garlic and you'll be flying. I think you are entirely too clever ;>

(and no, you may not look into my refrigerator!)

*shudder, gag, choke..*

Thanks for the image, Polly. Y'know I can handle dissecting animals, and heartbreaking autopsies, but food going bad is waaaaay over my limit.

HEY! Is that a formation I see in there? They starting to organize?

Next week, on Cooking Polly, Onion Gangs and what you can do with them!

Larry said...

AWESOME!!!!!!

Hey, this one time I found a Burger king take-out bag buried under a wet towel in my back seat and...

You rock Polly :)

I use dried onions. Mucho mejor.

Jeff Meyerson said...

A couple of years ago? They've been in there for two years?

(*mental note - never go to Polly's house for dinner*)

Polly P.I. said...

Don't worry, Jeff. If I invite you for dinner I'll just buy something from a local restaurant and pretend I made it.

Did I ever tell you guys about the watch battery I had lodged in my ear for two plus years??

Polly P.I. said...

LOL! I'm pretty sure not, Punky. I think I would have remembered that.

Higgy said...

That actually explains a lot, Punky....

kibby F5 said...

Nice ankles Punky!

Mike Weasel said...

WHAT? I CAN'T HEAR YOU! I HAVE A WATCH BATTERY LODGED IN MY EAR!

punky said...

Short version ... Kind of

I was in the sixth grade ... one of my chores was to clean the livingroom. I was vacuuming ... I caught something shiny out of the corner of my eye. Picked it up. Thought "this would fit perfectly in my ear" cause I'm quirky like that ... and proceeded to place the watch battery into my ear. It fell in beyond a point where I could retrieve it. I got distracted by the phone or candy, I can't remember ... and I forgot all about it. Fast forward two and a half years ...

I have an ear infection. I go to the doctors office and they pump out my ear. Water gets pumped in and then swishes out into a pan he's placed under my ear. On the third swish we hear a "TING". We look down in the pan and there is a tiny little wax coated something or other that doesn't belong in a human ear. After some cleaning, we discover it is a watch battery. I flash back to the incident a few years back and am too embarassed to admit I stuck it in there. I play dumb ... suggesting that maybe it floated in while I was swimming in the ocean ... doc looks as my Mom with a look of disbelief ... I stick to my story ... and make a mental note not to stick anything smaller than an elbow into my ear. End of story.

Polly P.I. said...

I hope you don't use tampons, Punky.

Tamara said...

...

...

Wow.

Leetie said...

*snork!*

punky said...

LMAO. Well ... If the watch battery had come equiped with a handy little string, it wouldn't have been such a problem! :-)

MrFisher said...

Wow, that story was quite an ear full.

And I guess being so young, you probably didn't yet own giant ear cleaner.

punky said...

No, I didn't. At that age, I was still doing it manually. ;)

Mike Weasel said...

*cough*

Jeff Meyerson said...

What Higgy said, Punky...

I got distracted by the phone or candy, I can't remember ... is a classic line.

Olga said...

My sister once got the non-bristle end of a toothbrush stuck up her nose. She had to go to the ER to get it out.
NEVER jump on your bed while holding a toothbrush.

punky said...

Olga,

Ouch!
