This past weekend, Fred and I played parents to his thirteen year old second cousin. At the restaurant, I tried to steer her towards a hamburger. I was excited by the idea that I might get to help her with her leftover french fries. But to my dismay and disgust, she ordered rognons de veau (veal kidneys). She might be the only person I know who eats them by choice. The only other person I've ever heard of eating them did so on accident because he forgot his dictionary while traveling in Montpellier and he still gags when speaking of the incident. To put things in perspective, he considers pigs' feet a delicacy so his repugnant food threshold is pretty high.
In the end, my experiment completely backfired. Not only was I unable to eat her food, but I could barely finish mine.

It refused to focus.
