Sushi? Me?

So last Saturday I did something I never thought I would. I tried SUSHI. I was scared to death because I hate fish. I hate raw meat. I was scared I would throw up in the middle of the restaurant in front of all of the sushi regulars.

I tried 2 different kinds. I can't remember what they were or what was in them. That was kept secret so I didn't back out of it. You're supposed to eat the entire thing at once, but I had to do a small bite just to test it out. It didn't taste TOO bad. So I put the rest of the hunk of the rice, raw meat, and whatever else into my mouth. Not the best idea. It took me a while to get it down. I chewed and chewed trying to keep it in my mouth. When it comes to food, if it has a weird or different texture that what I'm familiar with, it's a challenge. I finally got it down. Again, it wasn't BAD. Just new and something I definitely wasn't used to.

The next one had raw tuna in it? Maybe avocado too? It all happened so fast. I don't remember! It was better than the first one. This one I ate in small bites. Will I eat it again? Maybe. I was told that the next time I have it I should have the cooked chicken sushi kind they have at Happy Sumo. I like the sound of that better.

I was proud of myself. I'm glad I was pushed to try it!
