Telling the truth when it's hard, AND funny.

Years ago, my family and I lived in California. I was so young I have very little memory of it, although we went back several years later for vacation and I enjoyed it. Anyway, my parents had a couple in their church come over for lunch one Sunday after church. In casual conversation they started talking about cheese. Apparently, this couple raised goats, and made goat cheese themselves. My dad had never tasted it. The next Sunday they brought my dad a big chunk of goat cheese as a thank you for dinner. When they got home my dad tried a small piece, but spit it back out. He tried to keep it down, but couldn't. He didn't want to hurt their feelings because they had been so excited to give it to him. Ever practical, my mom pointed to section of the kitchen counter. She instructed my dad to throw the cheese exactly where she indicated. So he did. The next time he saw the couple they asked how he liked the cheese. He replied, "It hit the spot!"

lol that is a good one!! Sometimes that happens!! I don't like pumpkin pie and this woman at work said it was only because I hadn't tried her pumpkin pie so she brought a pie into work and gave me a piece. I had to sit there and eat it in front of her and pretend I liked it. Gagging all the way through it but not letting on. When I finished it she asked me how it was and I said it was good. So then she told me I could take the rest of the pie home with me. I stopped at the beach on the way home and fed it to the seagulls..lol They loved it!!

ha ha. so i was talking to someone about goat cheese. i absolutely love it. but i guess that the thing with goat cheese is that some people taste the smell of goats when they eat it & so they hate it. so they taste it differently i guess. it was interesting.
