My daughter Emily, nick name, BooBoo (my dad's nick name for her) aka Boozie(mine and my mom's nickname for her) aka MonkeyButt(my ex's nickname for her) aka En-a-me(my niece's name for her because she can't say Emily) aka Em-a-wee(my youngest name for her--same issue)...
Well anyway, Emily is an adventurous kind of child. Will do things just to do them. I mean I could tell you have the junk she's done, just to get noticed or just to let us know she can and will do it. Well I think today she met her match. (So far).
Emily is a garbage disposal when it comes to Sushi, oh she loves it loves it!!! I make it a point to go to the Sushi Bar at our commissary here on Ft. Sill when I do my shopping. For Emily, it's twice a month she gets it. The stuff is $8 for a tray, either 12 sushi rolls, 12 california rolls, 6 bar like sushi that had slices of meat on top(shrimp, eel, tuna, and something else). Well today I go and get meds for the kids because they were sick at school, when they had new items on the bar, Seaweed salad, calamari salad, sushi rolls with a crunchy topping and marinated Octopus. I was excited about the calamari salad, telling her "O O O,Emily!!!!" But she had her eyes on the octopus.
Okay, I thought you know you might no like it. She asks the gentleman, how you eat it, he says, eat it, I nearly said---by putting it in your mouth and chewing, but I thought, nah better not. He says, you eat the whole thing, good with rice. So she begged me to buy it, I'm like, O K!!
So we get home and she takes her meds. And pulls out the sushi box, and I'm looking at it going, I'm going to photo this for proof, you aren't going to like it. Then she syked herself and started freaking out, oh no, I can't I can't....I'm telling her well i'm fixing to give it to the cats because that's expensive stuff, I'm not about to eat it...So then I did the phsyc-o babble just to get her to eat it and get it over with because, I had things I needed to do, like build a volcano for the youngest child.
So I actually nibbled on it, just to say "MMMmmmm, good" (Liar) But you know, anyway, I did like the sauce but the Octopus was like rubber and was not that easy to chew. But was I going to tell her that.....a NO! So she sniffed it, she wiggled and jiggled it, and still having 2nd thoughts. Well finally again telling her the flavor was really good.
Well then she dropped the one she had on her fork, because the TJ the cat, decided it smelled good, and startled Emily, and he went to town, not letting Mr. Jingles having a bit of it....
So then Emily had to get another one, I said do it or I'm not going to buy you anymore sushi if you don't.
So then she inched her Octopus to her mouth and doing the moaning, with regret....hehehe!
And then i wasn't sure if she actually bit some off. So I told her to SHOW ME!!
Hahahaaha!!! She showed me....well now that it's on her tongue, she needed to chew it. Well you can guess what's coming next..........
The sign of REGRET!!! And said well maybe, the cat's would enjoy it, Along with it stuck to my tongue and I can't get it off. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
Serves her right. Maybe i ought to email Andrew Zimmerman and ask if she can join him on his adventures with weird and exotic foods. LOL
