Last night, my son was super tired during dinner and was therefore uncooperative. Normally, he'll eat what I fix, but last night he would not even put a bite in his mouth. My dad and my husband were trying to convince him to eat his asparagus because it would make his pee stink. Don't you want your pee to stink? Yes, that was their argument.

Did you know that some people don't have the gene necessary to smell their stinky pee? In case you need more information about the sulfur containing compounds that are actually causing this, go here.

I think I could have quite happily lived the rest of my life without know that.

I had no idea. I'm one of the 22% that can smell asparagus pee. Wo0t!
