    Sorry to derail, but this really reminds me of something.

    Our family took in foster children from the time I was 9 'til I was 19. My mother is an ESFJ; it's all her fault. We developed a reputation at Social Services of being able to take the worst of the worst (a secret the other foster parents didn't share with my parents until after they retired from the biz).

    The worst case we had was a particular two year old girl. From the minute she woke up in the morning until the time she passed out at night, she was a continuous, unstoppable force of malice and discord. When my mom gave the initial report to Social Services, they actually didn't believe her. So she kept a minute-by-minute log (but just for a couple hours - it was only a 100 page notebook). They were duly impressed when they read it.

    After we had had her for 18 months, she was infinitely better than she had been for the first few months. She still had her moments, but she was about 2% of the handful she had been. Social Services decided to make her available for adoption.

    A young, idealistic couple (heh heh), with no children of their own, took her in as a foster child, with the option to adopt at a later date. The woman ended up in the hospital from a nervous breakdown in just under two weeks. Amateur. :rolli:

    So how long did they have to talk to you before you were persuaded to be feminine?

    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I've never tried adding sweatsocks to a curry or mexican dish, but I suppose I could. I do like cilantro (coriander leaf, in the UK) very much though, so I dont have high hopes that sweatsocks will be as good.

    I'm still not totally sold on it.

    Good to see you here, Xander.

    Most of the local salsa here has cilantro in it. Never thought cilantro tasted much like sweatsocks, personally.

    It must be a recessive gene that causes cilantro to taste like [insert gross non-food item here] to a small percentage of us. Kind of like how asparagus only makes SOME people's pee smell.

    Like how canned mushrooms smell like wet dogs.

    Cool! Can you use canned mushrooms to sniff out hidden drugs, as well?
