1. I like soft, mushy foods and hate hard, chewy foods.
This is a recurring theme which you shall see again in the next few facts!
2. I love McDonald’s mushy fries.
I call them oicha oichas. (It goes back to a commercial I saw as a kid.) So whenever I eat McDonald’s, I only eat the oichas and leave out the crunchie wunchies.
3. I hate folded potato chips.
They’re so obnoxiously lumpy and asymmetrical, argh! I like flat ones because they fit nicely on my tongue. :3 Just like fries, I always pick out the folded ones and give them to my boyfriend.
4. I only eat the leaves of kimchi.
I refuse to eat the stems. As you can guess, the stems are hard while the leaves are soft. ◕‿◕
5. Speaking of kimchi, I also don’t like “good quality” kimchi.
Good quality kimchi is supposed to be spicy and sour. I don’t like spicy kimchi. I like kimchi that is sour, but not spicy—like the kind you get at Costco!
6. Whenever I eat cookies or crackers, I break them into tiny pieces first.
Not sure why I do this; it just tastes better to me!
7. I do the same thing with bread.
Shred first, eat second! This usually creates a pile of shreds on my plate which I then nibble on.
8. I am a messy eater.
I don’t have a big mouth, so things like sauce always end up all over my cheeks. And there goes my foundation, sigh...ㅜㅜ
9. I don’t like ice cream.
I stopped liking it about 5 years ago for some mysterious reason. Now, I only like specific kinds of ice cream, like red bean popsicles.
10. I gnaw on my straws until they are flat and mangled.
It’s just so…comforting! My favorite is when you can feel the straw smushing as you bite down with your molars. It's so amazing~! (/∇＼*)
11. I sip my straws from the sides of my mouth.
I like to position my straws on sides of my mouth, about where my molars are. That way I can gnaw on it while I drink. You can see a picture of me doing it here. (Edit:And here too!)
And for my own sanity, let it be known that I am not saying these to imply, “Look how quirky and silly I am! I’m such a weirdo, lol~" No.
In actuality, I don’t think I’m a very ladylike eater. And for that, I’m never really 100% comfortable eating outside or with friends because I’m trying extra hard to be clean, sigh~ But at least I don’t chew with my mouth open or smack my lips, so I got that going for me!
Thanks for reading! Anyone else with similar food habits?
(And for all you haters out there, that's lens flare, not dandruff–else I would have edited it.
But go ahead and pretend that it is; I'm sure it'll make you feel better about yourself.)
