A lot of times, I find myself on the outs. This or that is supposed to be something really great, and I hate it. Or this or that is supposed to be something really horrible, and I love it.
For example, I don’t like my pasta al dente, which apparently is the prefered way. I like it overcooked and mushy. Especially shells or maccaroni. Also, I’m not that crazy about chocolate, no matter how fancy or Belgian it is. I mean it’s okay, but I really don’t understand the almost orgasmic reaction some people have to it.
I’ve admitted before that I like grilled American cheese and Campbell’s condensed tomato soup, both of which seem to be the devil’s spawn to a lot of people.
And finally, sushi? Oh dear God, what has become of us as a civilization? I just truly don’t get it. I can’t even get past the thought of it without gagging.
Does anyone else go against the grain on things like this?
