Marty listened to Allie’s excuse and tried to forgive her, but her wild story claiming alien abduction as the reason for all that had happened, and her expecting him to believe the story, just defied all reason.

Like It Spicy?

Just something I was wondering…

After hearing yet another commercial for a spicy food product (sriracha nachos), I started thinking, what’s up with this trend lately for spicy foods? It seems like just about every restaurant has been featuring some sort of special spicy food. For example, Hardee’s has featured burgers with jalapenos recently and Wendy’s now has burgers and fries with ghost peppers. I know there are some others, but those are the first to come to mind.

Is spicy food really that popular lately? If so, why? It’s not that I have anything against spicy food. I like a good, mild spicy item every now and then (though spicy doesn’t seem to agree with me much anymore). I’m just curious as to a reason for the trend and if it really is that popular.
