I hate peas. When I was a kid I could manage to eat frozen peas if they were bright green and hard but mostly peas are, well, pea green and soft and mushy and I just hate them.

The reason I bring this up is this weekend I bought a new frozen dinner item – orange chicken. Should be good, huh? But oh no they included “fried vegetable rice.” The rice was neither fried and barely vegetable – it had carrots and yucky peas. So I spent nearly 1/2 hour picking peas out of this dish, just to be sure I didn’t get one by mistake. I’ve done that before with vegetable soup. Why do they have to ruin a perfectly good soup with those booger balls — yes that’s what I think they look like booger balls. (Oh and by the way, don’t get the Target brand orange chicken, it sucks.)

Just the idea of that horrible taste and that horrible texture gives me the heebee-jeebees. So we can add that to my list of foods I hate: mayonnaise, peas, liver, fish, beans (except jelly), milk, walnuts, etc.

When I was a kid my favorite meal was Chef-Boyardee spaghetti and meatballs followed by a Twinkie that I ate while having Lunch with Casey. I used to get that every Friday when I’d come home for lunch (we use to go home for lunch at school) and my grandma was there. Friday’s my mom had her bowling league and then went to get her hair done for the weekend so my grandma would come over and be there at lunch time. It was the best. Knowing now what is in Twinkies, I couldn’t be surprised if they were still in my intestines waiting to be fully digested. I believe they have a half-life of 10,000 years.

Remember only you can create a pea free America.

  1. Obviously you aren't topping off your vegepea fried rice with enough Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, else you could have been complaining about those cretins who turned violent in the streets because Vancouver lost a hockey game.
