29. When I was abut six years old my father gave me a drop of Tabasco sauce on a teaspoon ...

as a cruel joke. It was an amazing and tear watering experience.

That bottle lasted for a long time and I would occasionally venture back and try a drop for the shear kick of it. I advanced to two drops and then three. When I was in the service in the 60s, I could take an entire teaspoon of Tabasco sauce without problem. Overtime a person can develop a tolerance for hot peppers or sauce.

I've ate "nuclear wings" at restaurants when they make you sign a release and found them mild at best.

I'm far from unique. I have a few friends who also love hot sauce. In fact there is a fairly large cult of "chili-heads" in our nation. It's not that people like me are masochistic but we may like hot sauces and peppers because many scientists feel that eating such items releases endorphins. There are also supposedly many heath benefits from eating hot peppers.

One side benefit is that I never have to worry about my dog or cat nibbling on my food if I leave the room. Both avoid anything that I eat.
