    I Have to Grow On You

    I'm not sure why I'm an acquired taste.  I don't apologize for who I am any more -- I am just who I am, take it or leave it. I can be fairly intense, however, about everything.  My outword persona is to appear to take things lightly, like water off a duck's back.  That's...

    I Really Am

    I really am an Acquired taste. I can be so nice, but as soon as my Intelligence is questioned and put to use I can seem quite cocky and arrogant. Sometimes people find me that way, often thinking I am bragging. When really I only explain things a certain way that some people are...

    I Taste Good For the Soul....

    A little tangy, sweet, spicy and creamy, with a good high right through. I'm a little bit bad for your health but I'm always guaranteed to make you feel good. Yummy!

    Pickled Pigs Feet?

    Something like that or some kind of delicacy that makes you stop and wonder who the hell even thought to eat something like that in the first place. I'm thought of as disgusting by a few people. Most just pass on by me. That's fine by me. I don't mind sitting and congealing all...

    Like Okra

    You either get me or you don't.  Nuff said. Though I can probably be fried, served with chicken or rice, or thrown into gumbo too.  Your choice.

    Acquire My Taste.

    I am also what can be described as an acquired taste. I am easy going but I don't take sh*t from anybody. My motto is: " What you see, is what you get. If you don't like what you see, then don't get."

    Oh Geez ! Ya Think ?

     I can be bitter sweet, and it takes a very patient, understanding pallet to actually be able to  keep that acquired taste rolling.   I sometimes am an explosion of flavors, contradicting all the tastes  you have been familiar with all your life. ...

    In order to get know me and truly be my friend you have to have an aquired taste for me.  I am blunt and I am often mistaken as being rude because of it.  I'm not afraid to speak my mind.  If I don't like something, I'm going to let you know about.I have a difficult time...

    Not As Easy As I Wish It Were

    Yeah I take some getting used to. I can easily be great friends with you, but getting to that point may be a wee bit difficult for you. And considering I trust just about no one, well... Anyway, I'm an acquired taste, but I smell nice! That's a good start. :)
