Mr. P’s low tolerance for spicy foods has always been a running joke in our family. He does enjoy eating spicy food though and over the years we’ve been slowly building up his tolerance. However, every once in a while, he gets a little overconfident on how much spice he can handle.
During a recent visit to a new spicy hot pot restaurant, Mr. P was sweating so much that he actually looked ill. It just so happened that we were seated right in front of the entrance and customers coming in were doing a double-take when they saw his face. Luckily, he didn’t actually scare any customers away.
