If you can believe it, I actually eat so many things that I would've never dreamed of putting in my mouth as a child. Yogurt, mayonnaise, salsa, mushrooms, goat cheese, dates . . . I could go on and on. Mayonnaise is a particular feat because I remember the first time I saw it in 3rd grade when a friend's mom was spreading it on a slice of white bread (another thing I'd never seen before). I thought it was butter and was impressed with the spreadability. But, once I was informed that it was not butter I got totally freaked out and never tried it again until I about 15 or 16. I have similar memories and associations with all the other foods I currently don't eat. Hopefully they will slowly fade away so I can stop seeing baby diaper contents in every pumpkin pie or bowl of guacamole. And with that, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
