    Cool "fear" of tomatoes & others

    Hi guys,

    Tee hehehe ... I'm laughing at myself on what I'm about to tell you; FEAR of TOMATOES (& some other foods). Mainly tomatoes, however.

    I'm a very picky/fussy eater. I eat a lot BUT there're many foods that I avoid, that includes tomatoes.

    As a kid, I was fine with just pushing it aside. ONCE however, the *horrible* person minding me (well, at least that's what I saw her as when I was a kid) insisted on me finishing up a WHOLE uncooked TOMATO, there & then for lunch, or else I'm not going anywhere. *taking a deep breath* ... and so I ate it BUT immediately puked it out, along with lunch, morning tea & breakfast. Guess no one ever doubted me again when I said:"I don't eat tomatoes".

    Anyway, ever since that day, I avoid tomatoes with a vengence. If it's a burger, I'll wipe it off with a serviette. Likewise if it's in a salad or tomato-based dish; I just push it aside. Going supermarket shopping, I rarely (can count on ONE hand the number of times I buy it in a year) pick tomatoes.

    My friends always joke:"Hey cookie, how about TOMATO rice tonite??"

    Thank you all for listening. :=)
