    I always likened raisins to rabbit pellets, but whether it’s rabbit pellets or rat turds, there is still a reference to excrement from small furry mammals. This is why I prefer whole wheat or sesame.

      I like the moist aspect they add… though thinking that thought WHILE thinking about what they look like is particularly disgusting.

    so my mom used to call raisins “God’s Candy.” Somewhat surprising that we didn’t all turn out to be atheists. That beign said, loved your line about sad little raisin graves.

    replace raisins with coconut and that line about his mother would come out of my mouth minutes after meeting me.

    I’m laughing so hard I’m going to wait 30 minutes before I go swimming.

    Yes, you had me at “raisin graves” as well. Personally, I love raisin bagels. I try not to think of how they look but rather how they taste. Sadly, my love was pushed to the limit when in college I had to witness a girl eat a raisin bagel with tuna fish during lunch at the student commons. This very nearly ruined my appetite for any food at all. I couldn’t look at a bagel for weeks after.

      Yikes. Well.. I’ve had CHICKEN salad on raisin things, but you’re right – tuna just seems wrong.

    Raisins are so gross. They’re just reject grapes that didn’t meet their full potential- as a glass of merlot.

    This happens to me often when I go through McDonald’s drive thru for iced tea (what? it’s 99 cents ALL THE TIME!). For some reason, the employees there just cannot imagine why i would want “unsweetened”. Which i know pronounce with great effort so even an electronics issue or language barrier cannot mistake my order for unsweetened tea.

    But yet I get sweet tea.

    This is why we’re fat.

    There’s nothing quite like the crushing disappointment of driving away from the food establishment, finding out you got the wrong thing, then weighing whether you want to eat what you don’t want, toss it, or drive alll the way back, not to mention digging your own grave, SO annoying!
