This is a question Picky Eaters

An old, old friend of mine will not eat/drink any hot liquid. Tea, coffee, soup etc do not pass his lips.

Which would be odd enough if he wasn't in the Army. He managed to survive a tour of duty in the Serbian mountains in winter without a brew.

Who's the pickiest eater you know? How annoying is it? Is it you?

Hardcore Prawn
After a 17 year foray into vegetarianism, I was finally seduced by a pork chop. Iíll now eat anything that isnít nailed down. Apart from anything involving hot milk, because Andrea Wood sicked up a rice pudding on me in RE class when I was 7 and I still havenít got over it.

However, there are two food things make me want to run away and cry. Sharing food and eating complicated food in public; Iím a bit fat-handed and it usually ends up looking like Iíve skinned a puppy at the table. And sharing? Iím an only child; the word isnít in my vocabulary.

So imagine my delight when a boy asked me out for dinner. A date! That never happens! Oooh, yes please, Iíd love toÖ

We went for tapas. ďItís okay, Iíll get over the sharing thing,Ē I thought, ďIíll just order extra. Problem solved.Ē And I did, it was fine, I coped admirably, brave little Rakky that I am. One of the dishes was those big shell-on prawns. ďTheyíre a bit tricky,Ē I panicked, ďand Iím not hugely keen on eating with my hands either. No matter, Iíll just have to get on with it.Ē So I picked up a prawn and was trying to work out to get into the little fucker, whilst trying to look coy and girly and coquettish (Iím aware, by the way, that there is nothing remotely sexy about trying to peel a prawn, but I was a bit piddly and letís just add it to the long list of reasons that Iím still single, okay?). I finally managed to snap its head off and was duly sprayed in the face with the green sludge that had been its last prawny meal.

ďThatís the first time Iíve been the recipient of a prawn money shot,Ē were the next words out of my mouth.

My date looked at me, horrified. The couple on the next table choked on their patatas bravas. I called for the bill. I've never been near the buisness end of a prawn since.

Length? Good god, even I wouldnít sleep with me after that.
