Contrary to popular rumor, I have neither left the country or this life.
I have, however, been sick with round two of whatever horrible allergy-induced respiratory nonsense I’ve had lurking the last couple of weeks. I’m sure it’s allergies because, well, the symptoms just don’t add up to anything else and…corn smut.
Yup, corn smut. It’s a real thing, I promise. (Look it up. Just be forewarned – it’s nasty-looking.) It’s real and I’m allergic to it. Corn smut tends to hit the air around late August and early September when the farmers start to harvest the sweet corn. Oh, and did I mention that there is a corn field right across the street from our house? Yeah.
Corn smut is a delicacy in Mexico, though, and a pricey one. It has a fancy name – huitlacoche – and people eat it. Let’s just call it…Mexican truffles. Because it’s a fungus, friends. But I digress.
What all of that adds up to is that I’ve been down for the count this week, but I’m not missing out on the opportunity to post my TToT, especially because today is the Fab Hub’s birthday!!! I can’t think of a better topic for a list of reasons to be thankful.
And so, in honor of the Fab Hub/s birthday, I’ve enlisted Kidzilla’s help to compose a list of ten reasons we’re thankful for our Fab Hub/Fab Dad. See if you can tell which ones are Kidzilla’s contributions!
