I’ve always had a pretty strong stomach. In high school I loved when we dissected frogs and cats and worms in Biology class. At BYU I loved my human anatomy class so much I worked as a TA for it for a semester. (And smelled like formaldehyde for a semester as well.) I handled buckets of hearts, brains, kidneys, and wieners and never flinched.
But there are a few things that I just can’t stomach.
One is watching people spit. That is just straight up nasty. Especially huge loogies. Makes my stomach turn just thinking about it!
Next is watching people kiss and seeing tongue. So disgusting. Nobody wants to see that! Robbie Hart and Julia Sullivan may agree that you may use “church tongue” at the altar (movie, anyone?) but in my opinion the only appropriate place to use and see any tongue is well behind closed doors. Case closed.
Another thing that grosses me out and that I know I would hate to do is wait/bus tables. I can give injections, treat bloody botched circumcisions, and spread the butt cheeks of a 350 pound woman to check for hemorrhoids but the thought of touching a stranger’s used fork, napkin, and plate makes me gag. It just seems so dirty. People have filthy mouths…who knows what’s on those things?
Am I the only one grossed out by random things?
