Early in our relationship my girlfriend was asking me what kind of food I liked and I told her, as I often do, that I’m really kinda good with anything. No dietary restrictions, no major allergies, not a ton of strong preferences, I’m chill.
But then something earth-shattering happened – she got more specific. And as she started listing foods and ingredients and asking about them one by one, I realized that I was saying “no” way more often than I’d anticipated.
Was I, in fact, a picky little baby man after all? Had I been lying to myself all these years?
I’m still not over it.
To help me cope with my newfound identity as a picky eater, here are ten tweets from people who can commiserate.
10. Gotta go fast
Get it? Fast? Like, not eating? My genius is wasted on you people.
