Woke up in Houston @ 0400 as did DW. Started checking tablet as it is a good sedative. Came across this continuing thread & read some to her (she was in The Army & is well acquainted with the topic.....& hates it). She reminded me of her dadís SOS experience.

He was stationed at Ft D A Russell in Marfa, TX in the 30ís. He had been home in East TX on leave & hitchiked back to post, catching ride on the back of a motorcycle from Alto, TX (some 600 miles in todayís mileages). He got to post just in time for breakfast, not having eaten during the ride & starving. He ate 4 plates of SOS before he remembered to reach for the tobasco sauce.

His moral to his son before he entered service during the Vietnam era was that anything in the Armyís menu was edible with the right amount of tobasco sauce.

To this day we have a bottle of the stuff in our fridge. Never had to use it.

To me, even fried okra is guilty. Guilty by association.
I have never been able to put that " boiled snot" in my mouth without it immediately exiting in the opposite direction.
My folks tried repeatedly before finally realizing I had no control over it and gave up trying to force me to eat it.
Among the many things I was taught being raised in a southern household was to always eat what the hosts put on my plate. I lived in fear for years of being invited to someone's home and being served okra.

The offering of FOOD is an Honor
So suck it up---then politely excuse yourself




Love Hot Sauces but they need some flavor and a little heat

As for Tabasco

That is just Red Vinegar----yuk!

Speaking of hot sauces.
When I first started flying for an airline most of our flights were out and backs to destination vacation spots in Mexico and the Caribbean from major cities in the US. It made for some very long days. We often flew "augmented" with a third pilot due to flight hour regulations.
We had no choice but to eat airline food. Over and over and over and over again.
A majority of the pilots I flew with kept a bottle of Tabasco Sauce or some other hot sauce in their flight bags, aka "brain bags," to make the food palatable.
