Eating things in weird ways...

So I'm sure everyone has something that they eat a little differently. Of course, I never know that what I'm doing is different until someone comments on it. But I think it's interesting. Here are a few of mine:
  • APPLES--Ever since the infamous Paris excursion of '07, I find nothing inappropriate about eating apples in their entirety. True. Is the core actually delicious to the taste? Nope. But there is something oddly satisfying about starting at the bottom of an apple and eating the whole thing (minus the Johnny Apple seeds) on the way up. Odd sense of accomplishment? check!
  • OREOS--I have been judged many-a-time for this but let me preface this by saying that I'm lactose intolerant. K? So my friend Stacy takes an oreo and runs it under the faucet for a little before eating it. Brilliance! I can't dip it in milk, but run it under a stream of H2O for 3 seconds, I will!! A true delight. Don't knock it til you try it.
  • BANANAS--First of all, why do we all try to peel it from the top--at the stem? Am I the only one that has tried and failed repeatedly at this method? I usually pull at it in different directions until the entrails are nice and mushed and then just end up grabbing a butter knife to solve my problems. Well turn that banana upside down my friends. I always open my bananas from the bottom. It's easier to open it and handier to hold. Just sayin'. Try it.


  1. I love the details of yourself. You'll always amaze me and keep a smile on my face sorella. tvb

  2. Ha, I always forget who I let in on my oreo/water secret. It's a good one :)

  3. Brilliance, Mallory! I have never tried oreos and water, although....I DO eat my apples in their entirety and I've always peeled my bananas from the bottom up! SO much easier! Great minds think alike, I suppose.

  4. I am with you and Jana on the banana thing. My mom taught me to eat them that way when I was younger and I have been doing it ever since. That is how the monkeys in the zoo eat their bananas too.

  5. I've heard if you peel a banana from the bottom, you get less of those stringy things that just annoy you. So, I'm all for it! The water/oreo thing has me a little worried though, but no judgment here. :)
