The first time I tried cilantro was at a banquet for my father's promotion. After speeches were said, the guests sat down to indulge in dish called "Cilantro Stem Pesto." I had never tried cilantro before, so I was unprepared. As I took my first bite, I began to gag. The leaves were slick and slimy. I then proceeded to throw up on my fancy pants. Everyone then sat there and stared. My mother looked horrified and my father just sighed. I was very embarrassed and ran to the bathroom to clean myself. After that day, my father's coworkers called me "Throw-Up Boy." My father then quite his job because he didn't like being embarrassed like this.
So as you can see, cilantro has ruined both my father's professional life and my social life.
