food, mild anxiety 

there's an elderberry bush trying to grow in my back yard and every time I see it I get this mild worry that some small child is going to eat from it and get sick. it's not a rational worry, I don't know whose kid it would be or why nobody told them not to eat strange berries without asking, and ofc they're perfectly safe if you cook them first, but it's a worry


re: food, mild anxiety 

@else that hypothetical kid won't get poisoned if you get there first and make jam out of all the berries 😋
