The Happy! The Happy!

I went out in the woods yesterday, not really expecting to find anything, but I did! I did! No, not a Teddy Bear’s Picnic, some mushrooms! Not. That. Kind. ~snaps fingers~ Focus!

What I found was morels, the most delectable fungus on earth. If you don’t believe me, visit The Great Morel web site.

I’m posting about morels on Fatal Foodies today, although morels aren’t fatal. Unless, of course, one is allergic to them, or so greedy one eats oneself to death on them. Charlie and I shared ours with Mom.

As God is merciful, please do not leave comments about how many more you or your cousin found and how big them suckers was. If you make me envious, the sin will be upon your head. God said so. To me. Just now.

WRITING PROMPT: What makes your main character envious? Is he/she ashamed of it, or not?

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    I love to go Morel Hunting… I use to do it every year when I was a kid… I always forget to every year… that’s what makes me envious… people who are good at remembering things.

      I forget a lot of things, but food is generally not one of them. Especially free food! The time is now, Austin–HUNT! πŸ™‚
