I tend to treat spicy food the same way as I do all food. Like a child.
I have this weird thing where I evaluate food as though I’m still 7, despite being 27.
So I look at cake and am like, ooh that seems amazing, one bite and I’m like, oh yeah that’s gross, because sugar is gross.
Same is true of spicy food, I look at it and go, that’s probably awful and spicy, but try some and I’m like, wow why is this so delicious? In my older than 7 age, spicy food is just delicious flavor most of the time. Some things that other call very spicy, like the hottest sauce from BWW I don’t find very spicy. So maybe my tolerance is very high, however my initial reaction always being that of a 7 year old lead to me not trying new spicy things often. It’s a whole world I really need to explore.
