Fact # 6

6. I have eaten and enjoyed frog legs.

My culinary tastes are pretty standard. Not out of the ordinary at all, really. The most exotic dish I've ever tried is frog legs. I had them in a very fine French restaurant, years ago in Winnipeg (La Vieille Gare, for those of you who may know that city). Anyway, it's true what they say. Frog legs do taste just like chicken. But it wasn't the taste that posed a challenge. It was the visuals. Each frog leg possessed a tiny thigh and a tiny calf. Just like ours. It was a bit disconcerting. But I just closed my eyes and enjoyed them anyway. Savage.
