A Walking Contradiction

As I was sitting down to a delicious pumpkin pie (and ice cream) being served at my boyfriend's parents house this Thanksgiving weekend, a thought entered my head.

I don't care much for ice cream.

I relayed this information to my bf and his family and was met with faces of shock.

How can you not like ice cream?

Well, I continued, I don't know. It might have something to do with the digestive reprocussions that usually follow but I just don't really ever feel like having ice cream. I don't like cake either.

How can you not like cake?????

Well, it's just too dry and the frosting is just too sweet. However, I LOVE ice cream cake!

Again, I was met with shocked faces. How can you dislike cake and ice cream but love ice cream cake?

I don't know, that's just the way it is. I'm an oxymoron in many ways.

I'm just glad I didn't follow that up with another example: I LOVE giving head but don't care to recieve it.

That probably wouldn't have been very well "recieved" at the dinner table.




Question to you is: what do you do that makes YOU an Oxymoron?

First, I LOVE pumpkin pie AND ice cream cake!
Also, I LOVE meatball sandwiches and beef tacos, but I will NOT eat a hamburger. It's all about presentation and the other goodies that go on top I guess...

We all have our quirks. My friend can't eat eggs if she sees them raw before, but serve her a plate of scrambled eggs and she'll tuck right in!

hmmm...
I don't have any weird food quirks like that.
I'm totally with you on the giving/receiving head thing though.

I don't like ice cream that you buy at the store, but I'd kill for balsamic vinegar flavoured gelato at Casa Gelato. I tried it once, feeling brave, thinking it would be gross and it turned out to be the best thing ever. The same was NOT true for the following gelati:
- Chocolate Chilli
- Red Bean Paste
- Marmite
- Wasabi

I hate drinking milk.

I don't care if it has some flavor (chocolate, vanilla, etc), if it's cold or warm, anything. I hate milk.

Every once in a while I will buy a quart and drink it in a single sitting. Usually one big long drink...

Then I got back to hating it, but for that brief moment, I love drinking milk.

Meg - "balsamic vinegar flavoured gelato"...

Im totally with you on the ice cream thing, I eat it, but would never go out of my way to buy it, its not like a staple in my fridge or anything.

And as weird as it sounds, totally love giving head and not too keen on receiving.... now that is just weird....

I love ketchup but don't like tomatos. Oh and I love olive oil but hate olives.

Ice cream cake is my favorite too!
