The Spicy Pick

You have to choose one flavor that your sense of taste will no longer be able to distinguish. Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami, spicy (not a taste per se, but we’re generous): which one do you choose to lose?

Hmmm, I’m torn between sour taste which I hate and spicy – especially if it is too spicy – which can be a problem. So if I lose this flavour will I also not be affected by it? Like say if I lose the ability of tasting the spiciness of any food will the over spicy stuff affect me in any way? Like say I eat an extremely spicy dish like a chicken or beef curry – I’m talking over spicy eyes watering, burning hot going in and burning hot coming out the next day – and I can eat it without having to be affected by it? Hell yeah then sign me up!

Becase if I can still taste the dish without the spicy killing my taste buds then I might still enjoy the dish right? In that case I’ll keep the sour flavour and give up the spicy thing. Cause then I can really eat some dishes that could kill normal people. I definitely do not want to lose out the sweet, bitter or salty flavours.
