Needs To Spin(ach) That Around Again

| Friendly | August 21, 2014

(I am a very picky eater, and I also have a couple of very unusual food allergies. My roommate loves to cook, and is trying to think of something he can make that I’ll also eat.)

Me: “I mean, I’ll try whatever, as long as I’m not allergic to it, and if I don’t like it, that just means more leftovers for you and [Roommate #2].”

Roommate: “What are you allergic to?”

Me: “Bananas and spinach.”

Roommate: “Spinach?”

Me: “Yeah, it’s a shame because I really loved spinach when I was younger. Then I didn’t eat it for a few years and the last time I tried it my throat swelled up and I almost choked.”

Roommate: “Wow, that’s serious.”

Me: “Yeah.”

Roommate: “That’s too bad. I make a really good spinach salad. I use cherry tomatoes, and almonds – no, walnuts, and a homemade dressing. Does that sound good?”

Me: “Yeah, it sounds delicious.”

Roommate: *getting excited* “Would you eat that?”

Me: “No… I’m allergic to spinach.”

Roommate: “Oh, right.”
