Hmmm, and WHY do they call it Fun-Guy when there are no fun guys around?
Well, I can't really say that, I had my family with me and they can be very fun, but we're not talking animal kingdom here.
Have you ever seen a large Toad Stool? That's what I think it's called when they are this big. Can't call it a mushroom because I see small wrinkled gray things popping up in my head with the word, mushroom.
Now, Toad Stool, that's a word of grand proportions.
And what about Toad the Wet Sprocket? It should have been Toed, but I guess it sounds like they were a little too daring with electricity and got a bigger kick than expected so they stuck to making hit music and changed it to Toad.
Where was I? Oh yeah, Toad Stools. So anyway, driving along, my DH slams on the brakes and says,
"Did you see that? Did you see that huge mushroom?"
This, from a man who never notices I changed the shower curtain or lightened my hair. He STILL doesn't know that I've lightened my hair.
So, he does a U-ey, I get out with my camera - I always have my camera with me - and I take pictures to prove it's the biggest mushroom (he says) /Toad Stool ( I say) that we've ever seen.
But I have to ask, What KIND of toad stool is this? Why did it grow so big? Can you eat it? What conditions bring about such a large fungus? Why is it yellow on the outside but white on the inside? Why is the center brownish in color? Why are there dots all over its surface?
Unfortunately, I don't think I'll EVER find out. What are the odds a fungi expert will ever see THIS blog?
