The most Disgusting Food on Earth!

Ever since I was a little kid, I've hated ketchup! I don't know why, I've tried it several times through-out the years and I just want to gag every time I taste it. I do not have a bottle in my fridge, I use other stuff in meatloaf or other recipes that call for ketchup. BBQ sauce is a great substitution. My mom would make meatloaf for dinner and would actually make me go outside while she was making it so I couldn't see the ketchup going into the mixture. But I always knew, I can distinguish the taste. My dad would always have some clever saying, such as: "When the pig gets full the food gets sour". Like that would make me want to eat it. Everybody I know knows that I hate ketchup, they just think I'm weird...mustard on French fries, hashbrowns, mustard on everything! But no ketchup. My husband, bless his heart, puts up with this quirk of mine and has stopped even requesting it when I go to the store. I have tried to make the sacrifice for him many times, but, as my hestitant hand is reaching for the ketchup bottle, my stomach knots up and I just can't do it. And I cannot sacrifice my precious refrigerator space for a disgusting bottle of UGH! When I go out to eat Chinese, I NEVER eat the red dipping sauce, I know what's in there! I just come off from a year's employment at a Chinese restaurant and had to learn how to make the stuff. Somehow, I always managed to skip over this task. I'm not sure my former employer would get the jist of what I was trying to tell her, that if I had to handle ketchup, I was going to throw up...probably not something she would want me to do in a restaurant. And when I had to make upthe little dishes of red dipping sauce, I would hold my breath, clench every muscle in my body, close my eyes and run it out to the table to get the offensive dish of GROSS outta my hand! Don't get me wrong, I LOVE tomatoes. But I, from the bottom of my very soul, HATE ketchup! And, bottled BBQ sauce from the store is never in my fridge either...I jsut know they snuck some of that nasty stuff into their stuff...I make my own, from scratch, using tomato sauce and paste...absolutely no ketchup!!
