    I would have dumped this chick in a heart beat, after finding out she refuses to eat anything but chicken nuggets. I'm sorry, but I can't stand overly picky eaters, I find it to be very childish. What did this girl do at special occasions like Christmas dinners? Or going out to dinner at a nice restaurant? Or having dinner at a friends house? There's no way she could have any good friends who's parents are foreign, cause they do not take no for an answer when offering you food.

    The repercussions of having a diet like this go further than her physical health. This must have an impact on her social life as well. Let's not forget the strong social ties food has.

    Only someone with few "foreign" friends can say something like this.

    Whoa... Mr.Ihavemoreforeignfriendsthanyou over here.

    Well of the "few" friends with foreign parents I do have, when they offer me a plate of food, not once have I ever been successful at declining.

    What are you talking about? I'm foreign.

    Okay, I admit I did not account for the possibility that people may just be thick and not realise that it has nothing to do with foreignness.

    I guess I'll admit I didn't account for the possibility that some people don't understand jokes.

    I agree, but you do have to watch certain people who are more prone to the "ick" taste in vegetables. I have a nephew who visibly gagged on vegetables the *very* first time he ate them.

    He was far, far too young to be putting anything on and hasn't eaten more vegetables than he absolutely had to ever since.

    I'm the opposite myself, I have an extremely weak sense of taste/smell and love the crunch of raw vegetables. You can't always assume that everyone tastes what you do, though. For many, certain foods are just plain disgusting in ways we can't relate to.

    *NOTE: *Only* eating chicken nuggets isn't excused by this, and this girl seems like she's a little crazy.

    Meh, most little kids find vegetables icky. When you're a teenager or adult who still refuses to eat them (or at least a select view & a varied diet) it's a problem. I was an incredible fussy eater but changed over a long time to avoid being a sickly adult.

    There's a quote saying basically "it's easier to change a man's religion than his diet". Maybe we should post a poll on CFC testing out that hypothesis. :D
