Ever since I was a kid I would get a horrible headache every time my mother would make her homemade salsa. I would have to leave the house or otherwise die, because of the abhorrent stench emanating from the kitchen. It wasn't long before I realized what was making me so sick was that abomination of an herb-cilantro. For years after my family would attempt to force it on me by secretly slipping it onto my plate. But I could always smell it and it would inevitably result in my head basically splitting in two. No one has ever understood my hatred for cilantro until, lo and behold, I discovered a whole community of cilantro haters! I have never felt so alive.
