From Chicharronita's post on another thread.
A silly metaphor:
Have some soup.
No, thanks, I'm ok.
Please eat some soup.
No, I'm really not hungry.
Why? Wait, what's in it?
Don't worry about it! Just eat the damn soup!
Why are you freaking out, what's in the soup??
Just eat it!!! Now!!!
No way! I don't trust you or your soup!
I actually had a conversation like this with my mother! About soup, even! I am dairy allergic/intolerant, and my mother knows I "claim" to have a problem with dairy, and there was milk in the soup! I found out after a miserable rest of the day!
Ok. Enough self-pity!
