The other day I was reading about something, I think it was hunting binoculars at www.bestgunsafeinfo.com when an ad popped up (it’s creepy how we are targeted these days!) about taste aversions. Funny, I thought, because I was just researching them the other day. And now an ad pops up promising the answer all my unanswered questions. How convenient, I thought. So naturally I clicked straight through.
What I learned was that a taste aversion occurs when we eat something and have a negative response to it. Basically, when you eat something, it makes you feel sick. Why was I researching this you may ask? Well, here goes my attempt at explaining it.
Back when I was about 5 years old, I went for a walk to the shop with my cousin. We weren’t suppose to go – my parents had a fear that something terrible would happen to me the moment I stepped outside of the house, but we were young and wild, so off we went.
When we finally arrived at the golden arches, all I could think about was one thing – a McFlurry. Oh how beautiful they looked on the commercials, I thought.
This is something I would later regret.
About an hour later, when we were walking home, I vomited. It wasn’t a normal amount of vomit either. It was like my whole body was rejecting the liquid gold that had just been ingested.
When we arrived home, my parents were frantic. I forgot to add, but perhaps you could of gathered, this was before the age of cell phones so there was no way of contacting anyone. Oh what a time to be alive!
Anyway, until this day I can no longe eat McFlurrys. I can’t even look at them.
This happened with beer too but it seemed to go away by itself after a while, or maybe i just pretend it’s gone away.
