Playa Dust - The Ultimate Seasoning

Postby Drawingablank » Sat Sep 29, 2012 11:08 am

We were standing around the Dread Pirate Barbie camp getting ready to do some line sweeps on Monday when a neighbor walked in with a plate of bacon saying "who wants bacon we have plenty".

About half the plate was gone when he accidentally dumped most of the remainder in the dust. As he bent to pick up the spilled bacon he was saying something like "oh well there was plenty before that".

My son (Watah) said "are you joking" as he bent and snatched that bacon out of the dust and proceeded to eat it.

I don't think I have ever been more proud of my boy.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

I have eaten many things that hit the playa. It mostly depends on where I am. (Ie: If near portos, its considered moop and treated appropriately.) Most of the time, I just eat it...

Sometimes I have a playa G&T -- Gin & Tonic with a sprinkle of playa dust for flavour.

I am not a medial professional and I am not your medical professional. This is not medical advice.

But...

The particle size of playa dust is small enough that it might be able to escape the digestive system into the body. So I try to minimize eating it.

"Savannah" I like it . . . it makes us sound forward-thinking, and not at all like trailblazing, professional-level procrastinors.
