Alright, alright, I want to know how many people had their minds in the gutter when they read the title of this post…. did you??????
My oldest daughter LOVES spicy food – she has no problems emptying half of a bottle of tabasco sauce on her eggs, and still thinks they are not hot. I cannot ask her to taste food for me and tell me if it is hot or I may not be able to breathe.
When I was younger I LOVED spicy foods, but I have come to like them less as I have gotten older (I know, sad and pathetic). I still like spicy foods, but I do not like that feeling in my mouth after I eat them – the tingling, on fire mouth and throat. I suppose this is where old age and tolerance no longer like to dance together.
I love Indian and Ethiopian and Thai food- I need to find a new way to tolerate the spices.
Then there are the spicy people in our lives, but perhaps that is a post for another day!
