Is “relaxing like a mushroom” a colloquialism?

I often say that I want to relax like a mushroom and not everyone seems to understand what I mean … hence this quick post 🙂 Mushrooms grow in the dark and are fed sh… in other words they are able to “chill out”, hide in the dark, move very little, if at all, and need no overload of intellectual information.

Often, after a horrid and high-paced week, that is exactly my favourite weekend … relaxing in hiding and doing very little … hence relaxing like a mushroom 🙂

Did you know that mushrooms, like humans, need oxygen and produce carbon dioxide? This allows them to live in the dark and not relying on photosynthesis 🙂
