A Story

I hadn't encountered cilantro until about 25 years ago (I was 30) and went to a Vietnamese restaurant with my girlfriend at the time. We had an appetizer that was mostly raw cilantro, and moments after eating it I had a reaction that was exactly like the one you get when you smell ammonia. This still happens, in dose-related degrees, when I accidentally eat the stuff. I haven't known anyone else to have this particular reaction, but I was amused when, during a recent hospital stay, I had a red band on my left wrist [for listing allergies] and it just said in big letters: CILANTRO. It almost was like I was advertising the stuff...
