My colleague Dominique brought in this kind of scary looking jar with a big root floating in the middle of it. Apparently he was steeping a herbal tea using a burdock root that he had just unearthed from a city park.
Watching him take a big swig from it make me realize what a hardcore natural food person Dom is. And what a wuss I am.
(But tell me this doesn't look like some kind of alien pod? I swear I saw it move. Come on!)
