#72 Eat something exotic
I work at a restaurant on White Rock beach.
The tips are good, as is the food, and during the summer it’s a great place to work.
The current special is fresh shucked oysters: they look disgusting, have an odd fishy smell and at a dollar a piece, they aren’t the cheapest treat available.
I love seafood. But I’ve never had the guts to try an oyster (see reasons above), (I have texture issues too).
At work tonight, the owner of the restaurant offered me one, hoping I’d show up the bartender who was too squeamish to try one.
Seeing as I had “eat something exotic” on my list, I decided to go for it.
It was delicious!
Topped with a dollop of some sort of spicy sauce, the oyster went down beautifully.
