Ben Roethlisberger My Soul Mate?????
Before I read the interview with Big Ben in this week's Sporting News magazine, my crush on him was merely a football crush. But now, after reading one little part of the interview, I feel we are soul mates. So what if I am 10 years older???
Here is what he said:
SN: "What scares you off the field?"
Ben: "Snakes. I hate snakes. I scream like a little girl when I see one, even if it's a little garter snake. I can't stand 'em. I hate'em. I'm not really afraid of dying. Snakes and tomatoes are the two things I am afraid of."
SN: "Tomatoes? What happened? Did you have a traumatic experience with them while growing up?"
Ben: "I don't know. I just can't stand them. I like ketchup, I like tomato sauce and spaghetti sauce. I just don't like tomatoes. My parents like them; I don't know why I don't. I can't stand to touch them. I just don't like 'em. I'm not really sure why. I think it's just the whole texture...I don't know what it is. I hate tomatoes."
I have been teased my whole life for just this issue. I will eat ketchup on everything but put a real live tomato in front of me and I flip out. I love pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce and I can even eat a chunk of a cooked tomato if it is in chili or something. But if you were to put a little diced tomato in my salad, I just might throw it at you. I spaz out. I have no idea why, my whole family loves them but I just cannot deal with them at all.
Ben, will you please marry me? We can search the world for restaurants that will leave those nasty little buggers out of our salads. We can fight our weakness together and together be stronger. Think about it...give me a call sometime and we can set a date.
