Every time I go out for Sushi with a group, there’s always somebody who’s a sushi darer.
“Have you had the sea-urchin? I’m getting the sea urchin”
“I see you haven’t gotten the mackeral. That’s strictly for the varsity.”
Those quotes are from the person today. I couldn’t really tell them how I felt since my company wanted me to be nice and impress this guy so he’d give us lots of money.
But, I can tell you. And I will.
Listen here you inside out futomaki face, sea slug, I repeat Sushi is not an extreme sport.
I know when you were a kid you were one of those children who would eat poop and dare other kids to eat poop, but that’s kinda passe now.
The point of sushi is not to see who can eat the grossest or the most extreme sort of food.
That is the opposite of the point.
If you have eaten a lot of sushi than the point is to eat good food that you like. If you ahve not eaten a lot of sushi than the point is to explore at whatever level you feel comfortable with.
If you just want a California roll, or the fully cooked tuna tempura, and that’s all you feel comfortable with, or that’s all you want, then that’s fine.
Watching you choke down a sea urchin or an octopus leg that you obviously don’t enjoy is not impressive, nor do I believe you as you stifle a gag and tell me how much you love it.
And for your information, I have had both the sea urchin and the octopus before, so I’ll thank you not to admonish me to try new things.
You stupid putz.
