I’ve had caviar twice. Once was as a guest at the home of the rich parents of the guy my sister was dating at the time; I tried them just to see what they were like, and damn! This crap was good! I discreetly inquired as to the price, and while I forget the amount, it was way more than an ensign could afford. The second time was when my mother (after hearing me and my sister talk about how great the caviar was) got some for a Christmas treat. It was on sale and a really great bargain (we were told), and tasted like the worst thing you’d expect on hearing the phrase “old fish eggs.” What Did I Learn From This? There’s a reason caviar has a reputation for being an extravagance, and you get what you pay for.
