Doesn't really apply, but I found this while searching for something else.

There's a video recipe for calabash juice embedded right in the article. How convenient!

I had no frickin clue what a calabash is.  I live in NC, calabash is a shiatload of fried seafood.

Evidently calabash is a bottle gourd.  Like the decorative ones with two bulbs.  They're eaten as a vegetable when harvested young.

/Tmyk. I can't be the only one who didn't have a clue.

Other than the Jimmy Durante reference above, I've only ever heard of the calabash as a vessel that one of the three forms of curare are stored, the others being pot and tube curare.

Always.

FYI, a person can retire and draw social security at age 62.

My mother died at age 70 which is only six years beyond 64.

There's a 0% chance of that happening to me.

Social media trends are pretty f*cking stupid and a lot of the health ones are more likely to kill you than they are to help you.

Also from the article: The report is revealed as physicians also warn against other popular wellness trends, like taping a person's mouth shut while sleeping to enhance breathing.

The people promoting that particular trend should put tape over their mouths and their noses to get the most benefit.

Bookmarked for mom
Grew way too many squash in the garden
As a child, I always suspected they were dangerous
/ even though I am not yet 64, it sounds like too big a risk

I already despised any kind of squash no mattter how it's prepared - this just reinforces my stance on the subject.
