The Meat Platter
So, maybe one day I'll adjust to eating meat (bacon, ham, salami etc.) for every meal. But, probably not. Last night we had just plain meat on a plate with bread for dinner. So I thought, this is it. This is my chance to really try something new and like it. Christoph suggested I try the bacon. And, I thought, yeah sure. I mean, I don't really like bacon, but I know what it tastes like and I know it's not surrounded with a skin I have to take off before I eat it. So, I try it. Hmmmmmm. It was the toughest, stringy-est, saltiest bacon I have ever tasted, and the second I bit off a piece I had a clear vision of eating the actual pig. And then I gagged. Right there at the table, in front of everyone. So, I'm not there yet. I don't like the meat. But, I'm close. I can feel it.
I jumped up from the table, ran to the bathroom and spit it out. When I came back, Jasmin and Christoph were laughing their heads off. Luckily. They must think I'm completely crazy.
I am. But, at least I'm trying. Miss you and just plain old normal meat that doesn't come on a plate.
