Today I ate in a sushi restaurant for the first time. With my first bite, I felt immediate rollings in my stomach over the rawness of the salmon. Why am I so averse to eating raw meat? I feel the same sense of disgust when my mom samples her meatloaf before baking it. It doesn't make a lot of sense. Dead animal at room temperature, dead animal heated to a few hundred degrees. Of course, I don't like to think of meat as dead animals. I like to think of it as a pink mush wrapped in Styrofoam. Typical American.
