I hate spicy foods.. I cannot fathom the idea of why people like to eat HOT foods. For me, I find that spicy foods destroy my tastebuds and I cannot actually taste or enjoy what I'm eating. The only benefit I get from spicy foods is that my lips swell up and it looks like I was born with lips of a decent size.
So please, patrons of spicy dishes.. enlighten me as to why you like them..
