A few weeks ago, I had mentioned writing about the lessons to be learned from lamb fries. Last night, my friend Heather laughed when I said I might write about them this week. So here you go Heather, my spiritual reflections on lamb fries, aka as lamb testicles, and testicles in general. Hmm, spirituality and testicles. That sounds strange just typing it, but hopefully by the time I am done this will make sense.
Testicles are also referred to as testes, which is plural for the word testis. In Latin, the word testis means “witness.” In ancient times, men placed one hand on a testicle when taking an oath in court. Interestingly, there is no record of women having to put one hand on their vagina when doing the same thing. While we still take an oath in court, nobody is putting their hands on their genitals while doing so.
