Quotable

Sophie on Squid:

"My friends today said they didn't like to eat squid, but none of them have ever tried it. I told them judging squid is just like judging people by the color of their skin. Geez. They never even gave it a chance."

Agreed - you really need to eat someone before you can judge them... :o)

These girls are just fantastic!

Dear Sophie,

I have tried squid, and do not like it.

I tried it more than once to make sure.

I wonder if she would feel the same way about, say, roasted grubs or fried crickets.

I agree about the squid. And about judging things in general.

But I am perfectly willing to judge eating squishy grubs as no good and disgusting without ever trying them at all.

Conversely, you CAN judge a squid by its color. Those blue ones are untrustworthy buggers...

laughing at Ant's comment - hee!!

one hopes her sense of fairness and equanimity follows her into adulthood.

FYI - I have tried squid, and quite like it. Deep fried and served with marinara, you'd never know it used to have eyes and long wiggly tentacles.
