Murder on the Capsaicin Express

RE: Murder on the Capsaicin Express
I'm old school, I likes my Tabasco. Far as hot peppers, I did try one of those skinny little Vietnamese peppers once. It was right after the '94 earthquake. My manicurist, whose sons were all buddies of my son's, decided to have a joint birthday party for my son and one of her sons (birthdays only two days apart) and combine it with Lunar New Year. It was a blast, food was a combination of Vietnamese, Mexican and...pizza. My husband, my son and I were the only non-Vietnamese people there, and my manicurist's cousin Bu was having fun trying to get me drunk. Then, her sister Khanh decided it would be a nifty idea to try me on one of those peppers since they grew them in the back yard. Yep...pretty much up to their reputation.

But my favorite weird hot food experience had been a few years earlier, when I took my then-boyfriend to my favorite sushi joint. He was from England, he'd never had sushi before so of course he ordered same as I did. Well, he gets a gander at the wasabi and decides to chow a whole overloaded spoonful of the stuff at once. Despite my warnings, entreaties and pleas, he puts the whole blob in his mouth, and I wait for the explosion.

His reaction? "I quite like that, I think I'll have some more."

Never underestimate those English boys...

P.S. - When I took my now-husband to the same place on one of our first dates, he handled the wasabi like a champ. It was the hot sake that tripped him up. He wasn't anticipating the fumes when he took his first sip, and snarfed it. (Thank goodness for those protective "sneeze shields"...) The sushi chefs all laughed and asked "Your boyfriend okay? Your boyfriend okay?" Now he orders the hot sake himself.

Meow.
