If you went to a dinner party and were offered a dish you had never tried, would you want to taste it even if it sounded strange and not very appealing?
I realize that Sam I Am taught us that it’s important to try new things in the classic literary work Green Eggs and Ham. But I’m just not that kind of person. I tend to not try new things. There are the rare occasions when I allow someone to talk me into it. I did, after all, give sushi a taste at Jen’s insistence while I was in California. For a lot of years, I shied away from things if I wasn’t sure what was in it. If it looked odd or smelled strange, there was a good chance I was not gonna want to eat it. I’d have never made it on Fear Factor. I’m a little more grown up about trying new things these days. My tastes have really changed over the years.
What about you? Would you eat green eggs and ham?
