Yes, I always had to take "two bites" but I'm insanely stubborn, so I would 
claim to hate things no matter how much I liked them...until broccoli (one 
day I had this desire to eat broccoli, I just had to.  I'd never agreed to 
eat it before and all of a sudden I liked it...weird.) But anyway, I meant 
to ask: what exactly is a brussel sprout?  as far as I know I've never seen 
one or eaten one (although if they look like other sprouts I might have, I'm 
a sprout freak.)
