I thought the name was horrible and turned up my nose(We never had them)
Darlin', I always thought you were a bit on the odd side; I had no idea, though, that you never had a nose. That explains a lot. But don't worry: we love you anyway.
Anyhow, I don't remember eating them (rutabagas, that is, not noses) until I came home after some eye surgery when I was a kid and my brother turned my plate around so I got some by surprise. I objected loudly, my brother got in trouble, I ate and enjoyed the rutabagas, and all was well. I still like 'em better than turnips, and I really like turnips. Dammit, why'd I have to marry a Yankee?
I mean, she was born in Florida, but she's still a Yankee!
