overheard...wise words edition & a perfect spring vegetable...

person addressing my child: "do you want to hear the truth..."
my child's wise response: "well, i don't want to hear a lie."
sounds good to me!

Hmmm...I have asparagus in my fridge! I think I'll try this tonight (I heard roasting is THE best way to cook it). Looks good!
