Zero to Hero, Day 16 – Do you like spicy food, or do you prefer something tamer?

From today’s Daily Prompt, we get:

Ring of Fire Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring?

See what I did here?
It’s funny ‘cuz it’s exaggerated.

I actually just had Indian food last night, so I don’t mind some spice – up to a point.  BUT, a few years ago, a local Thai restaurant asked me if I want my food “spicy” or “Thai spicy.”  I choose the latter.  Foolishly.  My tongue burned with every bite and I was practically shaking.  I think it was even worse when I went back and attempted to conquer the leftovers the next day.  I seem to remember my stomach and intestines filing a restraining order against me after that, too.  So, again, I like spicy food, but only up to a certain level.  All things in moderation, yes?

  1. I went to India 2 years ago and ate plain rice for 3 weeks. All the food was too spicy for me. However ever once in a while I’ll get a craving for some spicy food, but I usually go with Mexican.

  2. Totally agree. I love spice; but I soon found out that my tolerance isn’t as high as I thought when I dove into some Indian food with a spice level of 7. Seems like we both had restraining orders against us 😉
