It’s time for the second Read Around the Rainbow post, and I didn’t participate last month (I did as Ofelia but not as Holly), so for us here on the blog, it’s the first! We’re a group of writers who blog on the same topic once a month, and you’ll see the ones who have written posts this month down below.
Weird Internet Searches
That’s what we’re talking about today. There are many, many times I’ve been thinking to myself that I hope no one will check what I’ve been searching for, but I’m gonna go with the most recent LOL
A few weeks ago, I submitted A Drop of Moonshine, and as you might have guessed, it’s the liquid kind of moonshine, not the shiny kind in the sky.
Now, at the risk of outing people I know, I’ve been involved in the process of making moonshine. I don’t know how it is where you are, but here it’s illegal. It’s illegal to own one of those distiller machines, so I’m not gonna name any names LOL
But how I ended up watching all kinds of questionable YouTube videos and reading shifty blog posts is that where I come from – Sweden – we make moonshine out of potatoes. Common knowledge, people! And they do in A Drop of Moonshine, too.
Since it’s been many years since I saw anything related to moonshine-making, I was a bit unsure of time and temperature and stuff, so the googling was on, and that’s when I realised that on the other side of the pond, people make moonshine out of corn.
I assume this is a take what you have at hand thing. Corn doesn’t grow well here; summer is too short.
Anyway, that’s how I ended up searching for moonshine recipes. And it might not be the weirdest thing I’ve ever searched for, but it was the most recent one that had me thinking ‘I hope the police don’t check my search history.’ Normally that thought pops up when I’ve researched how to effectively kill a character LOL
