A food epiphany

I don't like bananas. I don't like pudding.

But over the weekend, I discovered that I like banana pudding. I'm 30, from the South and a big fan of sweets, yet it was my first taste of the stuff.

Go figure, eh?

Much props to my friend's wife, who whipped up a batch not knowing that I was a banana-pudding virgin. She might have changed my life. Or, at least, broadened my horizons when it comes to dessert.

I can't believe that you lived in Texas all those years and never had banana pudding. It's only a potluck staple! Anyway, glad you finally got your first taste. It's one of the few desserts that I actually like.

I know, I know. The First Lady was completely floored.

I just never liked the look of it, and like I said, I didn't like bananas or pudding.

But our dinner hosts didn't know that in advance and just made up a batch. I figured, pretty much, I wouldn't have a choice. So I took a taste and ... wow. Great stuff.
