    let me tell you, it's serious. i used to sit outside at the caribbean club in key largo and play "watch the tourists park under the coconut palms" hahahahahahaha it was hilarious!! there are no coconut palms left in America except the keys, the blight killed them all. so you're relatively safe. however, if you come to key largo and see the tall brunette laughing at you, you better move your car.

    Two men in my life have died from eating poisonous mushrooms.
    I battered my second husband to death when he wouldn't eat them.
