So instead, this post is going to be about me accomplishing a goal, one that I've had ever since I watched the Anthony Bourdain Korea episode. That's right folks, I finally ate live octopus tentacles. And it was everything I hoped it would be and so much more.
Before I came to Korea, I happened to catch this episode of No Reservations and, after watching Bourdain devour those tentacles, I knew at some point while I was over here I would have to do the same thing. Here's the clip I'm talking about (it starts at 6:30 in):
J: "What are you doing today?"
M: "Watching a Golden Girls marathon"
J: "Scrap that, we're going to eat octopus"
J: " ...."
M: "OK, let me just set the VCR to record"
J: "What's a VCR?"
M: "It's like a cassette player. See you soon"
So, there you have it. With my goal accomplished and my stomach full, we set off to the nearby Olympic park to enjoy everyone's first time riding tandem bicycles. And a special thanks to Adam, Joel, and Maria for making this day possible!
