I am a teacher. I believe in introducing my students to new concepts, ideas and things. Today they each received a little slice of liverworst.
A few approached the morsel boldly, popping it into their mouths. The others waited and watched. Izzy gagged, spit in his hand, then grabbed a Kleexex and started scrubbing his tongue. That caused those waiting some concern. Brad and Jimmy ate theirs and asked for more.
Cindy took a bite, chewed twice and froze. We all started at her for several seconds. “You can spit it out,” I said. She ran for the sink and did so. Rico popped his into his mouth, chewed it up, shrugged his shoulders and said, “Remind me not to try that again.”
Jake examined his liverworst. Jake sniffed his liverworst. Jake took a teeny tiny nibble of his liverworst. “Oh!” He exclaimed brightly. “It tastes just like catfood!” Then he popped the remainder in his mouth and asked for more.
