More specifically we didn't know any better.
I thought I hated fish my entire childhood. Except trout, which you catch yourself, haul home and then clean and fry. That shit was good. But anything else? I mean, ZOMG who the fuck would eat "red snapper?"
Then I moved somewhere that seafood wasn't caught, frozen, shipped to Los Angeles, trucked to Phoenix, trucked to Albuquerque, thawed, trucked to Santa Fe, allowed to sit overnight, trucked to Los Alamos, allowed to sit overnight, unloaded, put onto styrofoam trays and allowed to sit in the reefer tray for three days.
Fucking Velveeta lives in an era where you should never eat sushi when you're more than a couple hours' drive from the coast.
