A couple recent snippets...
I have a particular coworker, TherapyGirl who has some rather fussy eating habits. She doesn't like strawberries or blueberries because they have itty bitty seeds, so you know raspberries are right out. She won't eat caramel because she doesn't like how it coats her mouth. She detests trail mix because all the ingredients touch each other. She likes all the individual components of nuts, dried fruits, seeds, chocolate bits. She just hates them mixed. Ditto for other mixes like Chex Mix even though , again, she likes all the ingredients.
She and MassageGirl like to send friendly zingers back and forth about their respective foibles. The most recent exchange that cracked me up went like this.
TG: I can't cut my apple with a plastic knife! Where's my good knife?
MG: Why do you need to cut it? Just bite into it.
TG: I don't like to bite into apples. I never know what to do with my upper lip.
MG: Gets juice and stuff in your moustache, huh?
Later on in the same day a patient came in and shared a bit of wisdom with us. "Life is like a jar of jalapeno peppers. What you do today may burn your ass tomorrow."
Now it's your turn to share.
What weird food habits do you have?
What food is life like in your opinion? And no, you may not say it's like a box of chocolates.
