Last night, a smallish group of friends gathered at Number 71 for a gathering which isn’t your usual gathering. A long time ago, we learned of a fruit, a miracle fruit, if you will. You eat this fruit, allow it to accumulate on your tongue, and then eat away. We ate many things, lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit, hot sauce, tabasco sauce, mustard, chocolate, melon, pineapple, apple, pear, different cheeses, and many more items. On a usual day, that’s a very odd meal, but when you add the odd effects of miracle fruit, you’re experiencing something very different.
The thing is miracle fruit seems to block certain taste buds, thus changing the way you perceive the food to taste. Generally sour food became sweet, and sweet food, seemed to lose a lot of their taste. Many foods seemed to just stay the same, but others like pineapple become something so very similar, but so very different.
It was definitely an interesting way to spend a Saturday night.
