Ewww Gross!

Warning:  This is a gross, yet kinda funny story.  Read at your own discretion.

A few weeks ago while we were still in KS, we had to go pick up some auto parts.  It was close to dinner time, and we were far from the RV.  DH and I decided we'd eat out.  I said something about going to Red Lobster, remembering they had a special. 

As we were driving Bella asked DH,  "Daddy, are you going to get oysters?"  (ewww, yuck!  they remind me of snot on a shell)  DH replied, "I didn't think of it until you mentioned it, but yeah, I think I will, Bella." 

I said, "Aren't you suppose to avoid oysters in months without an R?"  DH replied, "I don't know, I've always heard you're suppose to avoid rabbit in months without an R." "What? I've never heard of that!" 

So of course, the curious person that I am, got on my handy little Android phone (have I mentioned here, how much I absolutely love it?) and Googled something like, "Eating oysters in the months with no R".

This is what I found:  Oysters

So then of course I had to look up the rabbit thing.  oy, that's where this really gets gross!
I found this:  Rabbits

So after reading that outloud to everyone, my DS and DD are totally grossed out and kinda lost their appetites.  LOL 

We got to Red Lobster, which might I add, neither of my kids are seafood lovers.  Well for that matter, neither am I.  I like shrimp, scallops, lobster, and a little bit of certain kinds of fish.  The wait was about 15-20 minutes.  The kids saw a Red Robin across the street and asked if we could go there.  That's where we ended up.  That's another story in itself!  LOL

Every once in awhile, I'll kid my kids and ask if they would like to try rabbit now.  ;)

Blessings until next time!
