    Wow, another person who hates Bones! I enjoy meat, but find bones and ligaments Gross to say the least; that is I never had interest in wings or anything with bones.

    Recently started eating sunflower seeds during my long drive home from work on the recommendation of a truck driver. Developed a knack for cracking the shells and getting the seed and found that it really helps keep you awake and focused while driving. No wonder you can find bags upon bags of sunflower seeds at all those truck stops. As for fish… well I remember choking on some bones as a child and to this day I am wary of eating any fresh fish.

    Hahaha, I am always amazed how my mother in law swallows little lobters and gets them out her mouth with her chopsticks… When I tried to follow her example I almost chocked and gagged (in a restaurant)… She showed me how to do it, but even after 2 years I still pick them out first with my fingers :p To a lot of Chinese’s amazemend and amusement…

    When they tell me my husband didn’t thought me well, I just point at him and then they see how poor his way of eating fish is (he was raised in Europe), so they nod and understand, lol…

    But after getting a fishsoup in HK that contained fish and silken tofu, and I found a bone in the silken tofu (that also made me gag), I discided that when my child is born and breastfed I become in stead of vegetarian, vegan, so I never ever have to handle fish disches in China again… I just tell them I’m a follower of Kuan Yam… :p

    It’s incredible, isn’t it? Andy can destroy en entire fit in under five minutes with just his mouth and chopsticks. Down to the eyeballs, which, he tells me, “Are good for you.”

    I give those eyeballs a hard pass, though.
