I cant believe I'm even going to talk about this....

...I have my vomit bag near...

...& there will be NO PICTURES on this post because I never want to scan through my blog & see memories of this post.

It will be something that is mentioned & then quickly forgotten.

When I saw the prompts at Mama's Losin' It, I knew this would have to be discussed. 

Many of you that know me already know this fact about me... others may find this shocking... but rest assure.  Its true.... so very true...

So what is the writing prompt?  Describe a food you abhor.

Abhor... defined it means, DETEST UTTERLY... LOATHE...

Does vomiting at the thought/smell of it also define "abhor" because that's what happens when I think of this food.

... the dreaded food.... (I'm seriously in dry heaves thinking about it).... is cereal....

THERE - I said it... on my own blog... the "c-word" as the youth students will mention it in my presence at church.

I detest it more then anything... I wont even allow it in my home.... I try to avoid the "C" - aisle as much as possible because I can smell it.  And when I smell it, I want to vomit.... have actually vomited at just the smell alone.

And even talking about it (....see... there goes the gagging again) can actually make me throw up.  Just ask the youth kids.  They think its pretty funny to tease me with it... until I'm running out the door, chucking up my dinner.  When I even hear the word, I instantly can SMELL the SMELL of it... & I'm dying...

I know most of the world lives on this horrible product... I dont see how you do it.

I dont know where this passion of hating it comes from.  I've never even ate it before.  But the visual of it kills me.  I'm one of those weird "food touching" kinda people anyways - but anything "liquid-ity" really does me in.  I'm also not a fan of milk, so add those two together & I'm a goner. 

My mother says that even as a baby, when she would feed me Baby "C" (I honestly dont want to type it again) - I would sit in my high chair & gag... that's how far back this disgust goes.

I know... I know... I'm weird... I'm ok with that.

Now that the world knows my weird passion of hating this certain food, we must never discuss it again.  Its like Voldermort from Harry Potter... its the food that must not be named....

I gotta go breath fresh air & stop turning green now.... (inhale...exhale...)

& if you think I'M weird... ask my mom about how she feels about fresh bread or anything "doughy"... then you'll see where I get it from ...(sorry  mom... I know you are gagging now too... let's gag together)

  1. Wow, we're kind of c-olohics over here. I've been grossed out by a lot of foods, but yours is definitely unique.

  2. I don't abhor the c-word, but I don't eat it. It just doesn't apeal to me. I've never known anyone who actually throws up at the thought of it, though! LOL!

  3. OK can I just say I am stunned that you could even post about this. It is major …like you've taken the first step in a twelve step program . "Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am a C-phobic." What's next? A trip down the C aisle? Nah … you'll never make it to step two. There aren't just some things in life you just let ride!

  4. Mmmm, cereal... I had it for breakfast this morning, with fresh blueberries on top.

    I'm sorry. That probably made you blow chunks. :)

    Yes, that's a weird food aversion, but also pretty funny. And how cute is it that you call it "the c-word." 'Cuz to me "the c-word" means something else entirely!

  5. I'm glad you're okay with being called "weird", because...
    Honestly, I could eat cereal for every meal. I've never head of this certain dislike before. Are there others like you.
    Your Friend, m.

  6. Cereal of all things!? Girl that is funny. I don't think there is a normal food out there that I vomit at the thought of. My friend hates mayo and even the thought or hearing someone say it makes her gag. lol

  7. Interesting!

    Mine? Green Bean Cassarole and just green beans in general. YUCK.

  8. LOL - I had cereal this morning with raisins & a chopped banana :) With vanilla soy milk - yum!

    I have issues with carrots & cabbage, but even those I can tolerate if they're disguised by other foods (like in stew).

  9. I don't get it, I'll admit. Rarely a day goes by when I don't have a bowl of that goodness!

  10. You are the first person I have ever heard of not liking cereal! I love the stuff :)

    However, I know how you feel, b/c I'm the same way about pineapple. I thank God I was born in Ohio and not the tropics, b/c I would starve before eating THAT stuff. Blecchhh.

    Good thing we live in a country where we have so much variety, right?

  11. Rebecca...that's definitely a first for me! I thought you were going to say something like beef tongue or escargot. But, cereal??? Never would have guessed that!

  13. I am laughing so hard right now!! I don't think I have any food that makes me want to vomit...I pretty much like all food (a problem) but the food-that-must-not-be-named has so many varieties and seems so benign to be something that is abhorred!!!!

  14. This was funny - never heard of someone not liking cereal, but now I have!

  15. how funny i too have never heard anybody not likeing the c food! sorry to make you gag again! x stopping by from mamakats x

  16. Umm.... I don't even know what to do with that =) haha

    Do you eat granola? Does that fall into the C-catagory?

    My food abhor is beets. Gagging.... GROSS!!! It's so funny because my older sister LOVES them. Like can eat them right out of the can -- gag -- or on the salad bar with the juices running on everything else -- double gag --

    I have tried them and nope, NOT HAPPENING. I know they are good for me and I am kind of a health nut, but I cannot do B's. YUCK!! Then when I found out that they have a naturally occuring MSG (which I am REALLY allergic to) I felt better about my aversion. Yes, I am weird.

    So there you have it. I won't mention C if you won't mention B. Deal? =)

    Love you girl ~~ Have a Blessed day,
    Dawn

  18. That's too funny, if I had to live off one food only, it would be, okay for you and you only, I'm not going to say it.

    But I think you know.

  19. Seriously? I've never, EVER heard of anybody disliking it that much that they gag at the mere mention of it! That is HILARIOUS!
