I can't eat normal food. Just another side effect of my condition. My tongue operates....differently then yours does. This condition causes normal human food to taste utterly vile.
And oh man is it disgusting.
That doesn't mean I don't eat, however. You see, I'm an anthropophage. In other words, the only dish capable of offering me sustenance is the flesh of humans. And oh man, is it delicious.
It's not that hard to blend in; humans are very nutritious and one feeding can keep me going for around a month, allowing me to keep a low profile.
I live among the general population while keeping steady paycheck and a small circle of friends.
One day, my friend Samuel calls me asking for a ride to the mechanic to pick up his car that he dropped off.
On our way to the mechanic, Sam notices a taco truck that has set up shop on the side of a street in town, and insists that I pull over.
I stop and Sam orders a couple of beef tacos from a gruff looking man. After a few minutes of his grunting and smacking, Sam tells me I HAVE to try a bite.
It's been a while since I've last fed, and I'm not looking forward to being sick from nasty food, but Sam's persistent and I snatch up a taco to shut him up.
My mouth waters as I lift the taco to my lips. I bite. And oh man, is it delicious.
