Little daughter and I found some great wild onions/shallots growing in the back yard. HUGE bulbs and a big robust bunch of them. So we dug 'em up, knocked the dirt off and brought 'em inside, where daughter washed them and set them on paper towels to dry.

Anybody remember my apperciation thread on those from last year? It's become a Spring ritual around here.

Then, exchausted from all that manual labor, I went for my nap.

I woke a few minutes ago, wander into the living room to see my lovely spouse vomiting into a bucket. Literally.

Between spurts, she looks at me and says "Those aren't onions. They are daffodils"

Seems she had chomped on a bulb, it didn't taste quite right but she kept going.

At this moment she's on the phone with Poison Control. Her tone of voice sounds like she might not die after all.

ok things have calmed down a bit, she was making a bunch of racket while I was trying to poast this but she's taking a nice nap on the living room floor now.

Not sure who to award the i d 10 t award to - you for digging up 'onions', or your wife for continuing to eat them, despite the fact that 'it didn't taste quite right'.

Does this kind of thing happen in your house often?

Gonna be tough, since you plainly forced her to eat one. Even after it tasted wrong. While you were asleep.

sometime I'll tell you the story about my buddy's uncle's lake house in the dark piney woods of east texas, my other buddy's bachelor party weekend, and my 3rd buddy who was in the coast guard and brought 2 cases of glowsticks.

Are you sure she's still breathing? :eek:

Why was your wife "chomping" on a seemingly raw onion? That's a little gross, IMO.
