Mushrooming

The thing about suddenly getting a lot of rain . . . or a lot of ideas . . . or a lot of opportunities . . . is that stuff tends to pop up all of a sudden, seemingly out of nowhere. Just because something pops up and looks kind of cool doesn't mean it's any good for you. You need some expertise to tell the valuable opportunity from the time-wasting opportunity; to the untrained eye, it's hard to tell the delicious mushroom from the fungus that will send you out to hallucinate and die in the woods.

I won't eat a wild mushroom without checking with an expert first, even if it looks kind of cool.
