Sometimes when I’m dining with others, the conversation has a way of drifting towards organ meats. Which we Americans, in general, tend to avoid. I guess it makes us an easy target and since I don’t like them much either, you may as well paint a bulls-eye on my forehead…
“You Americans!” I hear, “You are afraid to eat anything.”
But by now, I’ve gotten pretty good at this.
So I respond, “Well, do you eat dog?”
To which they responded with appreciable horror.
“Well, some people from other cultures eat dogs and cats. Do you eat them?”
I never understand why people feel they have to convince you to eat something you don’t want. What’s it to them? Take squid, for example.
