Eavesdrop on Michael and me

[a snippet of conversation between my boyfriend and myself]

ME: I never thought I would get so excited about gardening. I mean, obviously these are some really special plants, but I get the feeling that I would be just as excited if I was planting violets.
MICHAEL: That’s what I’ve kept saying all along. You need to get a hobby.
ME: I already have a hobby. [points at computer, Charley Project webpage visible on screen]
MICHAEL: That, my dear, is not a hobby. That is your life.

      I am not planting flowers. I am planting bitter vetch, which they say when eaten will completely kill hunger for days and days at a time. From what I have read, it looks like you could subsist entirely on bitter vetch tubers (one per day) and vitamin supplements for days, weeks, maybe even months without adverse effects. We’ll see whether it really works.

    It doesn’t sound very nice at all. Bitter vetch? Sounds like throwing up to me.

      I don’t know why they’re called bitter vetch. They’re supposed to taste like licorice.

    Licorice is pretty gross to me. I don’t even like the fake red licorice whips like you can get at the movies.

      I don’t know if I’ve ever tasted licorice. But I don’t much care what bitter vetch tastes like; I’m not planning to eat the stuff myself, besides once or twice to try it out. And the tubers are pea-sized.
