10. A fruit you dislike and why
I’m going to cheat a little because I can’t think of any fruit I dislike. Sure, I favor some–cherries, blueberries, pineapple–but don’t hate any. Well, I don’t like plain raw mango. But I do love mango in anything, so that doesn’t count.
Let’s talk tomatoes instead. A my 13-year-old likes to point out, they are technically fruits rather than vegetables. And I really, really dislike raw tomatoes. Unless they’re in fresh salsa. I like them cooked or dried. I like them in things as long as they’re not raw. I love tomato soup (but not tomato juice). When I was really little, I was allergic to tomatoes. I outgrew that, but maybe it’s the root of my aversion. Don’t know. Just don’t make me eat ’em raw.
