IMHO–Eating Contests

IMHO

Why they should stop having eating contests

I have written this blog for a while now and this is the first time I have actually shared the story. The sad thing is that these type of things still go on. They had a taco eating contest at a Mexican Festival in our city. The organizers of these events don’t understand the risk they are taking until something happens. Until a family is changed forever. My brother even thinks hot dog eating contests are funny. He doesn’t even see the correlation between how his sister died and finding the humour in an eating contest.
I went to a bbq with a friend a few years ago and she brought stuff to make smores. I honestly thought I was going to be sick. I can’t have marshmallows in my home and I can’t even stand watching someone else eat them. It’s a huge trigger for me.
