What is one food that you refuse to try? Why?

While in Japan, there was only one food I refused to try. I tried natto several times, ate things that had bones or skin, and things with the consistency of mucus. (I do not recommend any of these things) The one thing I would not put in my mouth was whale flesh. It was cubed and fried, and appeared in our school lunch one day. I did not, and will not consume whale. I just couldn't, for ethical reasons. I couldn't eat Shamu. (I know, it probably wasn't a killer whale, but that's what came to mind when I thought about eating it).

How did you spend summers when you were a kid?
When I was younger, we would mostly spend our time hanging out in the neighborhood. I would ride my bike around and play with the neighborhood kids. This was before we moved-- I didn't really have friends nearby after that. Lots of time spent in the neighbor's pool. Every other year we would go to South Carolina to my mom's hometown, and spend time there. I liked it because fireworks are legal there, and we would spend a week out at the beach. One year I ran straight out to the water without putting on sunblock. I spent the rest of the week with a cast around my midsection-- I must have had pretty bad second degree burns.

Okay, so I'm a little bored at work. I hope everyone is having a good day.
