        To some extent, I blame my mom. She never tried us on, or made us eat, foods she didn’t like. That gave us a limited palette. I have tried to not limit Spook the same way, though I am sure I fail on some points. On the plus side, she adores yogurt, which I find putrid, so it can’t be said she doesn’t have a mind of her own.
