I THINK IT’S A MISSISSIPPI THING!

WOULD YOU EAT THIS FOR LUNCH? 

I was on assignment with FOX 26 photographer Charles Hobson.  He’s a veteran in the industry. While we were driving to the Medical Center area Tuesday I started to get a whiff of this hideous smell in the car I couldn’t reconcile.  I checked my top lip (remember that from middle school) before I said anything.   Then I asked Hobson what was that irritating aroma.  He reached into the back seat of the news unit and pulled out two boiled eggs soaked in hot sauce. I thought how horrible was that. He said it was delicious.  I told the photographer he had to get that from Mississippi, his home state.  He swore we ate the same thing in Louisiana.  I told him the closest thing I’ve had to that -pickled okra.  During a break he downed the two eggs to my dismay.  He called it a delicious lunch. I called it gross and I think I threw up in my mouth!
