Acquired taste

A [6 year old] connoiseur’s review of home-cooked food:

Calvin: Mom? Can I have a different plate?

Mom: No! Why?

Calvin: Someone puked on mine.

Mom: Oh knock it off Calvin. It’s hamburger casserole. There’s not a thing in there you don’t like.

Calvin: Really? This is hamburger? Hmm….THIS bite wasn’t so bad for some reason. I was able to choke it down. Anyway, my stomach’s still cramping up, but the pains aren’t as sharp anymore. The secret is to suppress the gag reflex. After I swallow it, I can stand it.

Mom: well, I’m glad to know this was such a hit.
