Well, I’ve eaten snake, crocodile, shark fin soup – and just everything.

Today another two halves of a conversation.

A: “Oh out in Japan they have the most amazing things to eat”.
B: “Like what?”
A: “Well, I’ve eaten snake, crocodile, shark fin soup – and just everything.”
B: “Wow that sounds weird.”
A: “You should go sometime, you could try it.”
B: “Oh. I don’t know.”
A: “Ah go on. You’ll love it.”
B: “Well I don’t know that I will, and right there is a problem. I don’t know that I like all those weird foods.”
A: “But surely that is the point. You’re not supposed to like it all. The fun thing is finding out.”
B: “No. I don’t think so. To me the unknown is a scary thing – A very scary thing. I don’t want to try new things. New things might take me to new levels or horribleness.”
A: “Or the opposite.”
B: “Yes, but that’s a risk I’m not willing to take.”
A: “So you don’t ever try anything new?”
B: “No. I do. I have. I’ve tried some very exotic thing, I just don’t often like to.”
A: “Okay then what the most exotic thing you’ve ever tried?”
D: “Well one time I had duck.”
