I like my cheese strong and my liquor hard. I don't like dressing on my salad, cream in my coffee, or milk in my chocolate. I like everything at its darkest, strongest, and most nearly difficult to stomach. My foods must be on the verge of abrasive confrontation with my tastebuds at all times. I don't want to spoil or saturate my flavors ahead of the game by simmering them in overly salty, possibly fish-based dressings or endanger them to the bland, mediocre destiny of death by cream-sauce. I want every taste to be bold; an independent and distinct assertation of its own qualities.
In fact, now that I think about it, many of these qualities are also similar to what I find most preferable in people. Yep...those salty, fishy people.
