I have proof that Ghost Peppers 1 of the 7 Deadly Sins. Ok, maybe I exaggerate a little bit but they sure are spicy, and I’m speaking from experience. Before we get into that whole thing, let’s start with Monday.
Greg and I took the boat out for the first time on Monday. I love going to the Catoctin Mountains because it’s so beautiful and peaceful. It’s the first time we’ve been able to take the boat out, so our primary focus was testing out the boat.
We took fishing gear with us for fun but did not think we would catch anything at the particular location. This is a massive tourist area, and we already know there are not much fish in the water up there. I’ve always loved sitting near the water and watching the waves. The sounds are calming, and I can just get lost in my thoughts. There is nothing better in my opinion. Nature has the effect on me.
We didn’t catch anything, but we did see some fish. I tried to get them with worms, but all they did was steal them from me. I guess I need to be quicker at it. They beat me this time. We both got a little sunburned so next time we need to be a bit more careful.
The day caught up to us pretty early, and we both were ready for bed before 9 pm. This is what happens when you get old. Lol
On Tuesday I finally took the ghost pepper challenge Greg pushed me to do. It was not as bad as I was making it out to be. Honestly, I like ghost peppers in dip and chili, but I’m not a fan of eating them plain. I made Greg’s son eat one, so it was only fair that I did the same.
It took me about two minutes to get up the nerve to bite it. Once I got up the nerve, it was not that bad. The pepper is spicy and from what others have said I did not drink anything, and that helped. When you drink after the pepper, it seems to intensify the burn.
I would do it again and next time I may eat a whole pepper. I’m sure Greg will make me eat a Carolina Reaper if he get’s them to grow. You do have to have a special something called CRAZY to deal with the pepper, and I’m convinced it’s 1 of the 7 deadly sins but what fun is life without a little sin?! Am I right?
