Discussion Thread: I've Never Tried...

Recently, when Deeky was visiting for the weekend, he asked what kind of breakfast cereals I had. I went to the pantry and read out a list of various unexciting multigrain and granola cereals, to which he responded with enormous contempt. "No Count Chocula? No Cap'n Crunch? What the fuck?! No Lucky Charms?!" On and on, until I was crying with laughter.

I explained that my mom had never bought sugary cereal when I was a kid—Honey Nut Cheerios was as wild as it got—and that I'd never even tried the more popular kids' cereals.

He was horrified, lol.

So: That's my tale of having never tried something that most people have, for no reason other than I just haven't! What's yours?
