I am not a fan of coffee. I have heard many people talk of the wonderful aroma of the beverage but to me it doesn’t smell great. However I do keep coffee at home because some days I don’t get enough sleep, either because of my deep personal stupidity, or because of work commitments. When I do have coffee I have it with lots of milk and sugar – in order to make it palatable – Captain Janeway would be horrified.
Today (2020/07/06) I had a caramel latte, because I was feeling tired in the afternoon, and I was surprised I actually rather liked it – or at least I didn’t dislike it as much as I expected to.
It got me to thinking about taste and options on food and drink. There are some foods which we accept that some people like and some hate but there are also foods that we would find it very strange for someone not to like.
I always find it odd when people don’t like peas. Not because peas are amazing but because I wouldn’t have thought there was enough to them to not like them. Then again I don’t like uncooked tomatoes. I also don’t like cucumber – but I will have it if part of a recipe. Cucumber with hoisin duck just works.
‘Hoisin’ is a word my spellchecker doesn’t know. It wanted to say ‘housing’ which is convenient as it allows me to clumsily segue into the other thing I want to talk about…
Tomorrow (2020-07-13) I am moving and I am, once again, realising how much stuff I have. Fortunately the new place isn’t far away so it won’t be too bad. When all is done I will have pizza – both as a thank you to my parents for helping me and because I will feel like I deserve it – even if my gut says it is a bad idea! Mention of pizza brings me right back to the top. I would find it strange if someone didn’t like that!
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
