And hear I did. Apparently the new taste sensation this year was bobcat (every year is something more and more unique)! Bobcat…really?? From all the comments I heard, it was not that tasty. Shocking, I know. So, my question today is Why would anyone eat bobcat? I honestly believe it is the peer pressure. Not saying that to be rude or make any commentary toward the men but, truthfully, we all face it. Teenager. Ladies. Even men. The pressure is there to “fit in” and be like the group.
Happy Monday morning:) Hubbie is off work today and we are enjoying a slower-than-normal Monday morning. He has actually been cleaning baseboards…and I’m thinkin’ he needs to stay home more often! Just kidding but I do enjoy clean baseboards:)
I was thinking back over the weekend and the annual Wild Game Supper that was held at church on Saturday. This event is really planned for the men; however, each year more and more women attend. The day includes a lot of hunting, fishing or other outdoor-nature stuff that is totally foreign to me but is truly an evangelistic opportunity where the gospel is shared. There is a huge outreach into the community and such – and apparently alot more women than I ever imagined are really “into” that type of thing….but not this girl! Uh, no. I just hear the details after the fact.
Maybe I’m reading too much into in – but, really, why else would you eat bobcat? or hippo? or any of a dozen types of roadkill?? Yuck. And, my second question….what is the most unusual – if not grossiest – thing you have ever eaten? I guess I would have to go with calamari. Oh, and don’t even get me started on some of the things that people will eat from the ocean!!
I’ll end with just a funny side story. When I was in Panama City with Jordan, he took me to dinner at one of his and his buddies’ favorite eating spots – a chinese buffet. I’m not typically a buffet fan but the food was really tasty and the selection was huge! They had a bit of everything – including fried frog legs. I hate to say yuck too many times but they did not look appetizing at all. I told Jo I’d give him 20 bucks to eat some. And he did. Oh, if I could have only captured the look on his face on film….but I was busy quieting my own stomach.
No peer pressure there – just the allure of an extra 20 bucks. Cold hard cash. What a silly boy!!
