Wheatgrass is Still Just Grass
Let’s take wheatgrass, for example. It is EXACTLY what it sounds like: the grass of wheat. From what I’ve read, wheatgrass contains good-for-you stuff like vitamins, minerals and amino acids, and it’s really caught on as a health thing; out here, lots of people squeeze it and put it into drinks like juices or shakes, and some folks grow it themselves. I’m not quite that ambitious, but I like to think I’m open to trying new things. Let’s just say it tastes like somewhere in the neighborhood of where chalk meets… well, GRASS. Yuck.
If there’s a lesson here, I guess it’s just to take small steps into a new experience. I’m proud of myself for taking a step into the health-focused L.A. food culture, but I think the next thing I try will be something a little less outlandish… like sushi or blowfish. As for wheatgrass? Hey, I can say I tried it, and be perfectly satisfied that my grass of choice is in the outfield at the ball park.

Congratulations on a wonderful season. I too am confused by the cost of some merchandise but also the little dogs people carry around. Bizarre.
When I lived near LA and drank tons of green tea like I hope you still do, my blood pressure was very low. If you’re doing the same, it’s no wonder you can stay so cool!
