Just when you think you've done the BTD so long that you know every value for every food you eat, life throws you a curveball.
Gordon is still learning about the BTD, and is getting more and more curious about how it all works and what is good and bad for him. (He's given up beef, but is hanging onto tomatoes for dear life.) Last night I pulled my BTD encyclopedia out to look something up, and he started flipping through it and was reading off food values. No surprises on most of them - I knew what was good and bad for both of us, he was surprised by several values. Then he read off "'silver dollar mushrooms' - good for me, bad for you".
WHAT? BAD FOR ME? I'm going to check the status of that on-line and double check it, because I thought they were fine for me, and the latest values are on-line. (Furious inquisition of Typebase IV.) Well, daggone, they really ARE avoids for Os. Hunh. Seven and a half years on the BTD and I'm just figuring this out.
Sure makes me wonder what else I thought I knew, and not just regarding the BTD!
