thought for food
Ever thought about why certain people don’t eat certain things?
I’m thinking about this because I spoke to a friend of mine last night, who I’m meeting up with for some food next week and is possibly the fussiest (real word?) eater I know.
If it was allergy related, I’d understand.. or some other condition that put restrictions on his diet, ok, fair enough… but its not, he’s just a fussy bar steward.
Thank god he’s chosen the restaurant… cunning tactic on my part to avoid what happened last time…
walk walk walk… “how about here?”… “no, I can’t see anything I’d eat”…
walk walk walk… “this looks nice?”… “they use garlic in here, I think I want something with rice” (I didn’t understand that either, or find it weird till I thought about it afterwards!)..
wander wander wander… “Ahhh, chinese! yes?”.. “they use MSG in here, I read thats bad for you” (true, but come on!!!)
you get the idea… any way, about 40mins later we went to…. yates! Oh dear. Well, the food was palatable I suppose.
Why are some people so fussy? I don’t eat everything… but I’ll give it a go!
I think part of it is, good ol’ fear of the unknown! Seriously. How many of you can name someone who won’t eat anything they’ve not had before? If they’re like this, challenge them head on to try something new and ask why… the answers are great!
“I don’t know if it’d agree with me” – coool, more laughs for me if it doesn’t.
“it might be too spicy” – again, here’s some water… red faces n tears make me laugh….
“I don’t know if I’d like it” – man, how do you get out of bed in the morning???
My weird thing was, I would never eat ketchup. One day someone asked me why, you know what, I didn’t know why, I tried it and from that day forth unless I know it makes me gag (like muscles, snails n other shell-type animals!) I’ll eat it!
Todays motto: Try it, you might like it.
