The Egyptians and Honey

This morning I smeared peanut butter and honey on my toast, and my dad asked,
"did you know honey is one of the few foods that never goes bad?"
Going bad is a relative term with honey.
I like mine fresh, gooey, and silky, but when it comes down to it,
It tastes the same whether it's fresh off the shelf or thousands of years old.
I know this bc my dad said,
"you know, they found it in the Egyptian pyramids. Still good."
And I thought,
I didnt know that.
Despite building a model of a pyramid in mr. Cox's 8th grade social studies class.
I loved his class.
And the egyptian pyramids.
And honey.
Especially on peanut butter toast.
The honey.
Not the Egyptians.
And did you know one honey bee only produces an ounce of honey in it's entire life?
I'm not even sure that's true,
But that's what my dad said he thought was true.
and then he said maybe it wasn't,
but wouldn't it be interesting if it was?
I truly do not want to fly home.
We've had too much fun.
Bon voyage!

Honey. It is one of my favorite cures for hay fever. So delish. Especially straight out of my dad's hives. Yum.
Can't wait for you to get home so I can hear all about your adventures.

It doesn't go rotten, but it does get really grainy.

Glad you had a hood trip- ours was so fun too, I had no desire to come home.
