Fish Tacos: Yea or Nay?

Over the weekend, my friend, Robin, posted this status on Facebook:

Fish tacos in Rhinebeck. Yum! — at Terrapin Restaurant & Catering.

One person “liked” the post, which doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that he “likes” fish tacos.

And, in fact, the general consensus based on the conversation that ensued was anything but “like” when it comes to fish tacos.

“I’ve never understood the appeal of fish tacos,” I commented to my friend.  “Can we talk about this next week?” I asked.

“I will be happy to opine about fish tacos and any other subject of your choice,” she replied, adding, “Oh, how I love to opine.”

“You’re on,” I quipped back, before adding this:  “In the meantime, enjoy the fish tacos.  Blech!”

A while later, Robin’s friend Richard chimed in with this:  “I always thought fish tacos sounded nasty until I tried one. It was good. But, I won't go out of my way for another one! Your friend Jane should at least try one. (Or maybe she already has?!)

No, Richard, I haven’t yet tried one.  They just sound oh-so nasty to me…

And apparently Arlene agrees.  She wrote, “Fish tacos just don’t excite me.  Yuck!”

As an afterthought, she added this:  “Will stick with cream cheese and lox.  Yes, much better.”

I quickly added a “like” to this comment.

So, what say ye, my friends?   

Fish tacos: yea or nay? 

Leave a comment and let me know.  Upon reaching critical mass, the results of JanetheWriter's official unofficial fish taco poll will be published in a subsequent post.

Stay tuned...
