Re: Dirt Eaters
In Response To: Re: Dirt Eaters ()
Just finished reading all of the posts from this thread.. and I am completely thrown aback.
Before my father passed in 2003, all he talked about was wanting to eat some (red)clay. He even used to dream about going back home and getting some clay. I simply thought that my father was near death and kinda losing his mind.
Interestingly, my mother went through a phase where she was eating cornstarch. At the time she was ill.. actually she was VERY ILL...and she was eating this cornstarch like crazy and I kept telling her that some type of mineral must have been missing from her body. When she recovered from her illness.....she stopped eating the cornstarch.
