Weirdness Defined

I was talking to one of my good friends the other day, and we were laughing about some of the weird hang-ups that I have with food. It was funny enough that I thought I would share.

1. When it comes to non chocolate candy...I will only eat the pretty colors (IE red, pink, purple) I throw the rest away.

I know what you're saying. "There are starving kids in China." Well, I'm certain they don't want the ugly colored starburst either!

2. I have a method for eating banana bread. First you cut a slice and put butter on it. Then you cut off a small sliver of bread off and eat it. Repeat until the slice is gone.

The most tragic thing is that I cannot eat banana bread any other way.

3. I can't eat a day old chocolate chip cookie without putting a little butter on top and warming it in the microwave (It makes it taste like it's freshly made)



4. I love grilled cheese sandwiches, but I like them with raspberry jam on top
(if there is no jam available, I like pickles on my grilled cheese, but they can't be grilled into the sandwich because that makes them warm and gross. I separate the sandwich after it's cooked and put them on.)


5. I hate bananas because they feel gross in my mouth. (I can't stand the dry sliminess)


6. I don't really like carbonation. I don't like the burn of it.


7. I love lemonade, but will not drink pink lemonade (Have you ever seen a pink lemon? I haven't!)

8. I can't eat chicken in a restaurant. (ew, gross!) I have this fear of biting into slimey salmonella chicken.


9. When I go out, my tip is based on the number of drink refills I am offered.


10. I love shrimp, but when I eat it...looking at the tail grosses me out.


Yeah, I know, I'm pretty much a freak!

I think it is fun that you have unique food prefreneces. I wonder what mine are. I have bacon, because my house smells like bacon for weeks after cooking it (that and I hate to see the fat on it).

Lauralee,
I love this blog post. Nothing is unusual if it brings you joy. I used to eat Hollywood bread by buttering it and putting it in the oven and melting it [pre-microwave]. I also used to eat TAB and a roll for three meals a day......till I got sick. Me, I like bananas but they can not be green or sogy. I hear ya...cw

I am glad to see that I am not the only one with food quirks... I probably have too many to list... lol
I have a problem with meat in general I think... I don't like the way bananas feel in your mouth either but I do love banana bread... figure that... lol
Have a good day!
