Today’s Daily Prompt: Can’t Watch This
When was the last time you watched something so scary, cringe-worthy, or unbelievably tacky — in a movie, on TV, or in real life — you had to cover your eyes?
To be perfectly honest, I don’t remember the last time specifically.
I have this thing with spoiled milk. A long time ago, I was at my parents house and looking for something to drink. I was a bit nauseous that day so, I decided to go with water but needed something to put it in. I grab a gallon jug that was sitting on the counter – it looked clean.
I opened the cap and smelled it – just in case. That was it…spoiled milk smell. The most disgusting smell on the planet if you ask me. Ever since then, I can’t drink the stuff without making sure it’s as fresh as it can get (without having a cow and processing plant nearby).
That day knocked a handful of foods I once liked off the list: cottage cheese, sour cream, even ice cream took a hit. I have reclaimed sour cream for my tacos and occasionally get talked into having ice cream…but that’s it.
I can watch Fear Factor, any scary movie, and deal with just about anything real life can throw at me – except spoiled milk. Yuck and no thank you! :)
