I'd like to thank you all for exposing a little bit of my own rudeness.
I have an extremely broad palate, my father traveled a great deal and I was served a wide variety of food from day one. (An aside, this did nothing for my sister though, she lives on plain chicken and oatmeal to this day.) I LOVE to try new foods and there are very few things I can't stand. I am one of those people who suggests that others try new things. I'm not really pushy about it, but I realize after reading ya'll posts that I probably come across as unpardonably rude.
Sorry and thank you!
