The Lesser Known Fifth Type of Taste Bud

November 22, 2008

Sophia: Mom, how did I learn what stuff tastes like?

Me: Well, God gave us these nifty things on our tongues called taste buds.  Taste is one of our five senses.

Sophia: Oh yeah!  There’s bitter, sour, sweet….

Me:  Salty.

Sophia: And there’s one called gross, right?

Me: No, I think that’s probably covered by bitter and sour.

Sophia: Well, there oughta be a gross one for pickles.

Me: I agree!
