Growing up, I was an extremely picky eater. I never tried different types of foods, nor did I really have the opportunity, so I carried that habit carried into adulthood. I was stubborn (I’m a Taurus after all) and became set in my ways and didn’t really have any interest in changing.
I moved to Lexington, Kentucky in 2008. I started a new job soon after doing technical support for Apple and I quickly made friends. One of the people I became friends with lived super close to me, so he invited me to dinner one night with him and some other of his friends. We were going to go to a $1 sushi place in located in the shopping center near our house (It no longer exists). I was super nervous, because I never had anything like that before. I didn’t want to lose that opportunity to make new friends or be labeled as the “weird, picky eater.” I explained to him my situation and he ordered for me without telling me what all was in it. That was that. Up until that point in my life, back in 2008, that was the first time I stepped waaaaay out of my comfort zone regarding food.
Fast forward to 2018…
