That's especially effective with people who are parents or have large exposure to children. It's almost an autonomic response for us.

I've never understood that whole game. Why, in the name of all that's holy, do I need to taste something that you say is vile? Why? Do you suddenly doubt your tastebuds? Do you need a second opinion before throwing the whole mess out?

This lack of understanding - and, thus, refusal to play along - especially comes into play if I can smell whatever it is that's being foisted on me and the smell alone makes me gag.

Of course sometimes it is just that the other person doesn't like, oh, say, blue cheese dressing on cold chicken. (Yummm.) Or sour cream and ginger snaps, or even cider shandys.
