So today at lunch the meal they served was sausage… big fatty german sausages. I was totally just going to pass up the opportunity to try this “cultural gem”… but then my buddy Victor gave me a hard enough time about “Why put off till tomorrow what you could do today?” and a whole schpeal about how I should try it sometime. and to be honest… of all the sausages I’ve seen, this one looked, not appetizing… but not completely revolting. You must understand, though… I just don’t eat sausage. Period. (lil’ smokies served on saturday mornings at home once in a blue moon and Calbasa with scrambled eggs on Christmas morning are the only exceptions.)
BUT… I figured if I bit the bullet now, I won’t have to do it again later. I also was pretty hungry at lunch so i was hoping I’d actually like it. To be honest the taste wasn’t bad. I wouldn’t consider it good, but I was pleasantly surprised. After one bite, I decided I could do a bit more, and decided to try it like a hot dog sandwich with bread and smothered in ketchup. THAT actually did taste good… but unfortunately after 2 bites I started to get a sharp pain in my stomach. With the next bite the pain got even worse. So i decided it was a sign from God. Anyway, I expanded my horizons by a centimeter with this little lunch experience today. =) Special shout out to Jas and Shawn because I thought of you guys when I ate it… I’m sure you would’ve thought it was delicious.
I’m about to start my second week of classes. please pray for me. these classes are pretty intense with how much work they expect in a short amount of time. I love you all.
