The words you never think you'll hear out of your husband's mouth

We were talking in bed last night about our impending vacation. Our yearly pilgrimage to our Mecca, aka Idaho. For all those of you who are cringing, don't think I haven't brought it up on occasion how creepy Idaho is.

I asked Derek why his sister is always discussing his digestive problems when we all get together. I mean, I have been with the man for 3 years and I have never really witnessed such problems. I cook stuff as hot as can be and never a complaint or reaction to my knowledge.

He said that every once in a while, something won't hit his stomach right. But doesn't that happen to everyone? He blamed it on his evil father who used to make him eat brain, stomach, tongue, liver, ect. But Evil FIL also was cruel enough to deny his children even the right to make a face when something tasted wicked bad (personally I think this is a good thing because there is nothing worse than a child who scrunches up his face and yells "EEEWWW" when asked to try something at the neighbors house).

We started to discuss how tongue looks when you see it in the supermarket. But this is the point of the conversation when everything went south...

D: You know, after reading the Lewis and Clark journals, where they talk about how much they looked forward to shooting a buffalo so they could eat it's tongue, I'm starting to think I might be missing something. Maybe tongue just needs to be fresh.
K: So what does that mean? If we went out and found a beef (yes, this is what I said) and cut his tongue out while he was still alive and ate it, it would be good?
D: Maybe.
K: I am SO blogging this tomorrow.

ick, i can't believe any one likes offal, there was a whole radio show dedicated to it in the wilds of canada somewhere while we were on holiday...

i never understand tripe, tongue, brain, heart, kidney or liver...although its not so bad in Pate as you can't really tell what it is...

:0)

Ohhh... your poor hubby! That is total child abuse. ;) I actually had to read the line over again because most of those things I didn't even know that people eat. Ewww... yuck!
And p.s. NO WONDER he may have had some digestive issues as a youngster eating tongue and brain! Blach... ;)

Mmmm, lovely. I don't think so. It was new to me moving to Montana to eat deer & elk. I actually had Moose recently. I have to admit though my system wasn't very excited by it all at first!

My father liked to eat tongue. It gave me the creeps. My mother didn't make me eat it, she said it made her want to vomit. Are there any women out there that eat that stuff?

hahahah! You say and do things when you're STARVED that you probably wouldn't say when you're home and comfortable.

Still, your hubbie is hilarious! Tell him I'd pay a dollar to see a picture of him eating toungue!

I agree--a little gross. And, I also would definitely have had to blog about it too! :)

Maybe if you use a lot of A1 it won’t be so bad.

I am not even sure that I knew they sold tongue in the supermarket. Interesting (and funny) debate, but I am thinking fresh tongue would NOT be any better. But, who am I to say???=)

I'm still stuck on the fact that you said you were going go out and "find a beef."

Which makes me think "Where's the beef?"

And makes me wonder, if fingers are getting into Wendy's chili, are beef tongues getting into their hamburgers?

Yes, that was gross, but so was your story! :)
