I’m a big seafood fan so I went into a restaurant and ordered a plate of mixed fried seafood. Several minutes later, the waitress laid a plate on the table that was more mixed than I had been expecting:
- Some of the creatures I had eaten before but had no idea how to eat prepared this way (they had lots of body parts I’d not had to deal with in the past).
- Some of the creatures I had seen before but had no idea that they were even edible.
- At least one of the creatures, I had never seen before in my life.
I’ve decided that a plate is not a good place to become acquainted with a new sea creature.
