    Default Turned off

    Have you ever had a really bad experience with something that you
    normally like but then all of a sudden it tastes awful. For years I
    have been having liver pate on crackers almost every night. Some pates
    are better than others. Lately we have been get Bittners herbed pate.
    Last night I had a chunk of it on a cracker and it tasted awful I can't
    describe the taste, but it was just plain nasty/ I was afraid that it
    might have been rotten and was afraid to swallow it. I spit it out, I
    wouldn't even give it to the dog.

    Dang. That was my favourite canape, and I am so turned off by that
    experience that I don't think I will ever try it again.

    As a grade school kid, I loved the cafeteria chicken, gravy and
    noodles. Until I got sick once and threw it up.

    Same thing with Bacardi Light Rum, after Bryan and I and others drank
    a bunch of it, and I had my first (and only!) got so drunk and puked
    my guts out experience! We were pouring Bacardi in a glass and
    slamming it and chasing it with CocaCola in another class, kind of a
    hardcore run and Coke. I counted about 13 I think. Crawled to the
    Porcelain Goddess, told Bryan and his girlfriend things I should never
    should have, the whole nine yards. Never again though! I didn't want
    any Bacardi Light for a long time after that.

    I was surprised by a formerly favorite curry sauce.

    For about 5 years now i have cooked only whole foods, not packaged or
    preprocessed commercial 'food products'.

    For the sake of a low/no salt diet an elderly relative (ER) is under
    doctors orders to eat. A box of 'stove stop stuffing' sent her to the
    hospital a few years ago.

    But last october, for a treat i bought her a box of a Japanese curry
    sauce we both liked. And i just forgot to look at the salt content on
    the lable, made it up and tasted it and it was so salty i could barley
    swallow it.

    Then i looked on the box and saw some hugh salt amount i forget the
    exact percentage of but had i seen originaly i would not have bought it.

    But what amazes me is how much of it i used to eat and not notice the
    saltyness of it.

    After 5 years of a no salt diet it became very noticable.

    Now days i buy plain curry powder and make my own sauce.

    Beer. For a while in my late teens and early 20's, I enjoyed the taste
    of beer and drank it in prodigious amounts.

    Then I stopped. Didn't have a drink of any kind for almost 5 years.
    When I tried beer again the taste almost made me gag... and it has been
    that way ever since.

    Yeah -- when you hit that soft, mushy spot when eating fried catfish.
    Ewww.

    I used to make oyster stew a lot, but then suddenly they tasted
    funny. Haven't had courage to make again.

    Hot dogs. I had one, went on the merry-go-round, and have never been

    Yeah, buddy, and Sue and I probably said/did a few things under the
    influence of Bacardi...
    What bizarre times. Hey, on Thursday I mailed Calliope a copy of
    SotA. *She's* living in a commune in Virgina these days. The one
    thing we REALLY NEED TO DIGITIZE is Weirdos on the Street/Quicksand.
    NO MORE DELAYS with that. Really, John. Really. I might f-ing cry
    if I knew that that tape got damaged before archiving it. THat, and I
    haven't heard it for far too long.

    Chilean sea bass. Had one bad one - at a favorite restaurant that has
    always had top quality food - and can't abide the idea of
    ordering/eating another.

    We aren't on a salt restricted diet, but about seven years ago, we
    pretty much stopped eating any packaged foods. We salt our food
    normally, but not overly, so when we go out or on the even rarer
    occasions that we eat processed foods, we are amazed at how salty the
    food is.

    I loved Frangelico, I would add a little to ice cream or drink a tiny
    bit. One night we had our priest's family over and ate and ate and ate.
    I made a milkshake with ice cream and chocolate and frangelico. Then
    the next day, I had some sort of food poisoning or stomach bug and the
    main flavor experience was the frangelico. I haven't been able to drink
    it since.

    We once caught our limit. Complete limit, including what was legal
    for our children to catch of oysters. Slightly too big oysters. We
    fried them, ate stew, the whole thing. We simply had too many for a
    short amount of time. It's been about eight years since then and we
    haven't wanted to eat oysters since.

    There was a girl in girl scouts with me who asked for all the middles
    from oreos at a troop meeting. She ate this huge stack of them and then
    threw up all over the table where we were sitting.

    Mussels. I used to love mussels. And yes, I know all about not eating
    mussels that don't open after they're cooked. I still managed to get a bad
    one. Spent the next day in the bathroom and it sure wasn't a "spa day"
    I don't think I'll ever eat mussels again.

    Bourbon. It was about 30 years ago when I was young and inexperienced.
    I knew how to pace myself when drinking beer, but didn't realize you
    could drink whiskey a whole lot faster than you actually absorb it, so
    you keep getting more and more drunk even after you stop. I was sick
    for a couple of days.

    After about 10 years or so, I could drink Crown Royal again, then good
    bourbon, and then eventually anything. But I'm careful with it.

    Oysters. I ate about 30 bbq'd in the shell once and was sick for days.
    I still eat them but only like 5-6.

    I can imagine. My wife got sick on mussels and it reminded me of the
    time I had food poisoning. I used to eat mussels regularly but not since
    that happened to her. I am not willing to take the chance.

    Banananas. Got drunk on Wallbangers the night before I went to sea for
    the first time. Threw up Wallbanger all day the next day and smelled
    Galliano for a week. Was about 15 years before I could face a banana again.
