hundred word wednesday – “wasabi”

This story is not autobiographical. I am not a fan of wasabi, and I am a fan of sushi. Listen, guys – I’m trying to like wasabi, just give me some time, alright?

There was a time when he didn’t care for sushi. It wasn’t an active hatred, nor even an active avoidance. Just, if he could help it, he probably wouldn’t have eaten sushi.

But then came the moment he actively switched over, and began to enjoy sushi. He had accidentally put too much wasabi in his soy sauce without realizing it, or maybe the wasabi was stronger than he was used to. Either way, it had the same effect.

He spent the rest of the night layed out on a couch, feeling like shit, but feeling alive.
