Asparagus Scented Pee
Just started reading the book, “Why Do Men Have Nipples?” by Mark Leyner and Dr. Billy Goldberg. These two guys tag teamed on this project in an effort to, as the book’s sub-title reads, answer “Hundreds of questions you’d ask a doctor after your third martini.” God, I love these kinds of books!
Last night, I learned why asparagus makes your pee smell, that sugar does NOT(as opposed to what my mom told me growing up) make kids hyperactive and that if you swallow gum, it won’t sit in your gut for seven years (again, contrary to your mom’s teaching).
I think the world needs more books of this kind. Why? Because when I give speeches and have Q & A time with those in the audience, I almost invariably have someone say, “I always wanted to ask a blind person this…” And then? I answer their long sought question. It’s something I don’t mind doing, but there’s such a stigma over asking questions that, too often, people stay ignorant for life… out of simple embarrassment to ask. Thanks to Mark and Dr. Billy for giving the public something to learn from… and be entertained at the same time!
