They knew what they were getting into and walked into it with both feet, bowls and spoons in hand ready to tempt fate.
Fate can be a cruel mistress.
The morning after I had cooked 2 large pots of food, one of them being chicken/sausage and okra gumbo, the wife of one of the guys woke up and when having coffee she started laughing. I asked her what was so funny and she said her husband, who had been sleeping with her in a tent, woke up at 0' Dark Thirty and went to one of the Port-O-Lets on the grounds to relieve himself and he was walking very fast, in tiny steps with ass cheeks clenched like they were a vise so he could make it to his destination without soiling his pants.
All I can say is, "I warned them". Okra has an effect on people who don't have it in their diet.
