OK, I have a proposed amendment to the constitution that governs the usage and conservation of water... in the powder room:

- we all know Article 1 of the constitution: "if it is yellow then let it mellow" (this of course we stole from the old english legal system, stating "if thou seeth yellow, haste not, 'tis mellow")

- but.... I've found that if you add one of those blue tablets into the tank (you know, makes the water blue for many repeated uses), then I'm proposing the following amendment: "until it's green, it's clean" (I don't know the old english equivalent of this). I think I can fool my wife into getting one more visit before she gets grossed out.... unless of course asparagus is involved...

Juanita--yellow and blue make green 😉

Those blue tablets are bad for septic systems, kills the good bacteria. I'm all for conserving water but I can't live that way. Invest the money on one of those toliets that just uses a little water for a small job.

Ohhh bother!... so much for that idea... I humbly withdraw the proposal for amendment...

Juanita, if you ever eat asparagus I think you'll know... if not... no, you probably don't want to ask...

Well, I guess I should answer your question: There will be a somewhat unique scent passed on to the contents of your ballast tanks (aka "bladder" for non nautical folks) from eating asparagus.

Well, you guys have unceremoniously ruined my favorite vegetable. I never thought about it before, and will try not to again!

Oh come on... you know you will... and you'll chuckle. But I agree, it is the champagne of vegetables, isn't it...

My kids love broccoli... the only vegetable I don't like... and it has issues also...but let's not ruin what might be your 2nd most fav vegie.

Eng, you are crucifying my favorite cruciferous veggies. Please don't touch my Brussels sprouts... I don't think my heart could bear it...

Nope, as long as you don't think about "eye balls" when you're eating them, Brussels sprouts are wonderful also...

Sorry... couldn't help myself... and let's not even get started on those sexy fruits...

My husband absolutely loves aspargus but absoutely refuses to eat it because of the aroma that is created after it's been processed.

I figure it's got to be good for you somehow, right?... I mean, it's a powerful chemical reaction. I've never tried it to remove paint, but I wouldn't be surprised.

And let me tell you... those little blue tablets do their magic... I'll have to see if I can find septic-friendly equivalents.
