“Back in high school in my health class we had a teacher that passed out all these little pieces of paper and he said we're going to find something out about you. Everybody put the piece of paper in their mouths. I was the only one in class that spit and screamed how awful it tasted. I would love to know what that was testing for. I have a sensitivity to certain foods like spinach and cilantro. Also, I can’t stand the taste of beer or wine. It burns my mouth.”
