    I had to do something similar at summer camp once. I hate papaya; it tastes like vomit..

    That’s exactly what scrambled eggs reminds me of.

    first time I ever had a papaya served to me, all I could think about what how it smelled like a poopie baby diaper……..sorry I ruined papaya for some folks. Of course the fact that it did smell that way to me may have been because I had a newborn and almost everything smelled that way. lol I have had papaya since and I make an effort to NOT smell it, I mean it taste ok but the smell is what got me.

    She’s right. He can set an example that will be followed. My grandfather refused to do this and a lot of sickness followed instead. But my dad is doing this now and the children are eating healthier because of it. Of course I’m the one telling my dad to eat the healthy foods, and luckily Dr. Oz promotes healthy eating so it’s not just me howling into the wind. I can say Dr. Oz said this and that about whole foods and no sugar.

    I think mangoes smell like cat pee. I have never tasted one because I don’t like the idea of eating cat urine.

    Mangos are tasty and I don’t think they smell bad at all. Even the durian (which smells bad at a certain time of year) tastes good.

    Papaya is called variously “fruita bomba” (tasteless fruit) and another name that is slang for an anatomical part. There are quite a few fruits that I don’t bother with (that’s one). I do like most fruit and vegetables.

    Yes, the term “pawpaw”……..(in Malay a repeated noun indicates plurality)…..they do look like that growing on the “tree”.
