My teenage daughter had one of her friends over, and for their entertainment, they participated in the Smoothy Challenge. I found the two in the kitchen with the blender and an assortment of items: Tomatoes, peanut butter, pepperoni, lime juice, Parmesan cheese, and yogurt.
"You're not seriously thinking about mixing all of that together, are you?" I asked.
My daughter grinned. "Yeah, we are. We're doing the Smoothy Challenge. We're going to mix it together, and then drink it."
"Are you crazy? You're going to make yourselves sick!"
They shrugged and proceeded to dump it all in the blender. When they were done mixing it, they had a thoroughly disgusting brownish concoction. They poured it in glasses and took a sip. (All while filming it.)
Apparently it wasn't good, because they both contorted their faces and promptly spit it out.
"That tasted like vomit!" the friend said. "I think I'm going to die!"
"Mmm," I said. "Should I call an ambulance?"
I walked over to where the bottle of lime juice was sitting and picked it up. "Interesting. This stuff expired last May."
They turned a sickly shade of green.
(Maybe I should've called the ambulance!)
