i never thought i was a picky eater. but let's be serious.
i was over at megan and gregs last night, and we got on the topic of movies. there is a long list of classics that greg has not seen. megan and i were shocked. (okay, there are some on the list that i hadn't seen either...but hello dolly??? singin' in the rain???? come on now...) so we made a list. movies that need to be watched. and it was a long list. (poor greg)
enter the peanut butter cookies. i first declined because they were crunchy cookies. i don't like crunchy cookies. greg said he would get me some milk. WHAT?!? are we friends? thats when i admitted that i never in my life remember pouring a glass of milk to drink. glass of milk to dunk oreos in...milk over my cereal...but when i'm done, i just dump it in the sink. i have never drank (drunk...drunken...dranken...shoot, i don't know) a glass of milk.
payback time. greg made a list for me of food i need to eat. megan kept listing off food and was shocked when i said i didn't like it, and even more shocked when i admitted i've just never tried it before. okay, i admit...sometimes i just get it in my head that it's gross, so i won't even go there. sometimes i get it in my head that fruit is supposed to be cold, hence warm cobbler is gross. peanuts are saltly, so mixing them with sweet chocolate is a no no. where did this warped thinking come from? no clue. but it's there.
so here's my list:
a fun size snickers (truth. i have never tasted a snickers bar)
a small glass of milk (yes, i made them specify small)
shrimp with cocktail sauce (sick)
cherry pie. (i've only ever had pumpkin pie...or that chocolate creme stuff.)
there might be more, but i've chosen to forget. i know what most of you are thinking. easy, right? i looked at that list like my mom had just handed me a list of chores. gross. so everytime greg watches one of his movies from the list...i have to eat something nasty. at least i get to watch a good movie, and at least greg gets to eat something he likes. and lucky megan has the best of both worlds.
