I Hate Sushi

I'm not really sure why I started thinking about this earlier, but it popped into my head, and I kept mulling it over. It seems like everyone I know loves sushi. Perhaps I am not very sophisticated. Perhaps I just enjoy food that is cooked.

I have had the California roll before and semi-liked it. If it weren't for that seaweed paper, it'd be really awesome. That seaweed stuff is just too fishy. Blech. I'm not big on seafood. In fact, I never had a shrimp until I was 15 years old and to this day, that is the only seafood I will eat.

Luckily, I lived as a vegetarian for 15 years so Fridays at Lent aren't too difficult for me. Side note: Catholics must refrain from eating meat on Fridays during Lent, but we are allowed to have seafood. If I don't want seafood, I perfectly happy with a cheese pizza or grilled cheese sandwich or any other vegetarian entree.

Buddy loves the Red Lobster. He likes to order the crab legs. My dad got him hooked on that. I'm usually the one cracking those suckers while my meal goes cold. I told a friend of mine that I hoped I lived another 17 years at least. By then, both kids will be out on their own and perhaps I can enjoy a vacation - and a hot meal. Y'all did know that even on vacations, Moms don't get vacation, right? We're still responsible for everything.

My mom had a sign hanging in her laundry room that said, "Around here, I'm the responsible one. Any time something goes wrong, I'm responsible." I liked that. But, after she died, my aunt (who had bought her the sign) wanted it as a memento, so I mailed it to her. I should try to find another one. LOL.

Stick a fork in me, I'm done!

  1. I have never tried sushi, because it is completely opposed to everything I've been taught in life.

    Cook thoroughly, at a temperature of 140 degrees or more. Kill that bacteria. And so on. And then you have these folks eating the raw fish, and I'm confused. Sophisticated? Ha. Let's go with smart!
