A long time ago ( in a galaxy far, far... nerd alert! ) I was eating dinner in Truth Or Consequences, New Mexico, just before heading to Elephant Butte for a weekend on the water. I ate a lightly grilled jalepeno after my friend's dad downed one and asked if I'd like one too. I spent the next 15 minutes gasping for air and clutching any available fluids. Not sure where they got those peppers, but I sure as hell won't ever forget it!
