I was thinking aloud to my roommate the other day, “Do people from different cultures taste differently? Like because we eat different foods and have different lifestyles and, you know, we’re different . . . so . . . what do you think?”
Roommate, after a pause, “Probably,” then excitedly, “You know what we should do? We should have people from all over the world line up and then we’ll go down the row and lick them! On the arm! Cause we don’t want to bite them; that’d be gross. Then we’ll know for sure.”
“Oh my gosh, that is such a good idea.”
“Or, or, or,” she practically shouts, “We could ask a vampire!”
“Sure,” our friend Jeff pipes in, sardonically, “Because those are real.”
I look at him for a minute. “Yeah, except I don’t actually believe we were talking to you,” I mutter.
So, Internet, what do you think? Do people taste differently? Am I the only person who ever wonders this? Isn’t Jeff kind of a jerk?
(Just kidding, Jeff. You are actually not a jerk.)
