Life changing experiences, or not
So the other day when I was in Bonao I was served a plate of plantains that was piled high with onions, I mean there was a lot of them. I figured I would just eat them because I was hungry and I didn´t feel like being rude. As I ate them I began to tear up a little bit, and I though´t, wow I must be having one of those life changing experiences everyone keeps talking about! Seconds later, as my eyes started burning, I realized that onions will do that. An onion is a Lachrymator, now I have one more reason not to like them. But for the record, I did eat the whole plate of them.
