I hate tomatoes. It's not something I'm proud of, but there it is. I'm fine with tomatoes in liquid form, such as in sauces or soup. I'm even okay with tomatoes sun-dried. But large chunks of tomatoes are disgusting. One time I was eating sweet and sour pork. The restaurant was semi-dark, so I couldn't see that well. I put what I thought was a pineapple into my mouth only to discover that it was a huge tomato chunk. I nearly barfed and I had to spit it out. My life would be a lot easier if this wasn't the case, but I really have a problem with tomatoes. You can't ask me to like a food that stimulates the gag reflex as soon as I taste it. I won't do it!
