My Dad Tricked Us Into Smelling 100 Year Old Beaver Castor

Postby unseentangerine » Thu May 22, 2014 11:11 pm

As a child playing in my uncle's house I often marveled at the various family relics that he had ended up with: my great grandfather's self portrait, a scent gland from a beaver. But on his mantel was a box he said was very special. He said I couldn't touch it, but someday it would be mine.
After he died, I held the box in my hands. What was in it? A pocket watch? An old photograph? Inside the box was most unexpected. A black, shriveled, foul smelling lump. I instantly knew what it was. It was our heirloom tomato.
