Yup. Never met a carbohydrate I didn't like.

No. Full of rhubarb pie.
tpbm will, taking their cue from the fact that when I was growing up my family called rhubarb "flamingo guts", will tell us something of their particular family culture.

Or else tell us why rhubarb is spelled with an h.

'Cause it looks cool, and you can annoy all your friends by pronouncing the "rhu" breathily.

The person below me wishes Americans liked the term "aubergine" over "eggplant".

Yep. There aren't many that are much more fun than alcoholism. And boy do I have it. But now in a fun way - I'm treating it.

TPBM can relate to that

If Hong Kong prior to the British leaving counts - yes. Otherwise, no.

TPBM not only knows how to fix a flat tire but has done so - any vehicle with tires counts

Best was the shuttle bus coming back from the airport.
Driver had no clue and I didn't want to wait by the side of the road for god knows how long.
They gave me a free ride for that.

TPBM knows how to fix a flat without taking it off the vehicle.

I do. It was my favorite birthday requested meal when I was growing up. What did I know? My sister always asked for T-bone steak. It's been a while since I made some, thanks for the idea, fishy.
