"Hola,

 

Today was Big Dummy day, where we bestow all manner of trivia on you.  As happens every week, we got distracted by some of the trivia.

 

Today it revolved around scurvy... as in, the disease that no one gets anymore.   Well, not so many as back in the pirate days.  "Aargh" pirates, not the Somali pirates.

 

So, scurvy develops in your body due to a lack of Vitamin C.  We knew that, but we didn't know the symptoms.  They include rotting teeth, yellowing skin and SPONGEY GUMS!   Holy SH*T, Jay!  I don't know why that bothers me as much as it does, but it does.  'Spongey' is a horrible word to be associated with anything on the human body.  Gums in particular.

 

However, 'spongy gums' is also a fantastic nickname for a jazz musician.  Steve "Spongy Gums" Hill.  Try your own name.  Yep... you sound qualified to play with Miles Davis now, don't you?

 

That's what I've got.

 

Until tomorrow, do what you do best and STAY BEAUTIFUL!"
