It’s been a couple of months since I posted something to make everyone think I’m a jerk, so here’s my question today: Have you ever noticed that sometimes Mexican food (or the inauthentic stuff you get around here, anyway) smells like B.O.? It’s really disturbing to me when someone walks in and I have to give myself a smell check to make sure I remembered deodorant that day. No wonder I don’t care for that kind of food. I can’t imagine anybody would want to eat something that reminds them of ninth grade gym class.
Oh, and by the way, lest you think I’m being unfair here, there is one particular ingredient in a lot of Korean food that smells like a dumpster on a hot summer day. And I spent two years there eating it. So I’m not playing favorites here.
