    1. Also, since my mom is 1/2 Hungarian, I grew up eating that delicious poppyseed bread, but we just called it “bejgli”. I’m guessing that “makos” is the modifier that means “poppyseed” but I have NO idea since I don’t speak Hungarian!


    1. That was actually the inspiration for the post! I had never heard of fiddlehead fern, so after seeing a picture of it after I took the test, I thought a “spiral” edition would be appropriate! Sorry I didn’t learn about it before the test!

      1. I figured it had to have been your inspiration! No way fiddlehead ferns come up twice in one week in my life out of coincidence. Best of luck with the test results and waiting it out!
