Onions Inspired by RL

The onion is believed to have originated in Asia, though it is likely that onions may have been growing wild on every continent. Dating back to 3500 BC, onions were one of the few foods that did not spoil during the winter months. Our ancestors must have recognized the vegetable's durability and began growing onions for food.
The onion became more than just food after arriving in Egypt. The ancient Egyptians worshipped the onion, believing that its spherical shape and concentric rings symbolized eternity. Of all the vegetables that had their images created from precious metals by Egyptian artists, only the onion was made out of gold.
Today, onions are used in a variety of dishes and rank sixth among the world's leading vegetable crops.

"i hate smelling like onions"-ticktock500, wednesday, 1:47pm, after peeling thirty five pounds of the damn things.
"i hate smelling like onions"-ticktock500, wednesday, 3:30pm, after showering forty five minutes.
"i hate smelling like onions"-ticktock500, wednesday, 9:23pm, after showering again.
"i hate smelling like onions"-ticktock500, thursday, 3:12am, after being roused from sweet scotch-induced slumber, because his hands still smelled of onions.
ok, i don't always smell like onions and honestly, i do love what they do in food, but goddammit i hate working with the damn things.
