Vindication

Anyone who knows me well, or just shared a meal with me, knows that I am a very picky eater.  I am trying to get better about it, but there are just some foods that I cannot eat.  And now, I have vindication.  I've conjectured for a long time that I have a over-sensitive sense of taste or something because I like a lot of bland foods.  And can taste when there is something contaminating my food.   But I didn't really know if that was a thing.  Now, thanks to my beloved wikipedia, I have proof.  I am a super-taster.  Check out the list of "problem foods".  They are almost all on my list.  Haha!  So now I don't feel so weird for sniffing my food before I eat it, being "afraid" of trying new foods, and for wiping the pickle juice off my plate so it doesn't infiltrate into the rest of my food.

I think I'm going to have to make the They Might Be Giants' song "John Lee Supertaster" your ringtone for when you call me!
I also think I prefer the explanation that you're just weird. ; )
