Aniseed is definitely not my favorite thing in the world, however this weekend it was forced upon me as a remedy for stomach turning. Much needed these days. That's where the negativity stops however. Aniseed, it turns out, rocks.
Still, the smell can be slightly overpowering to say the least, especially first thing in the morning, and then the taste of course. I know this sounds silly but wasn't there a really obvious thing we used to eat as kids that was basically aniseed flavored? I can't remember for the life of me what it is. Is it licorice? I say this because I really hate licorice, and I'm putting two and two together.
Ah, wouldn't life be great if subjects like this were the sole extent of our worries?
Well, today is clearly one of the great days because that's all I am worrying about, and the stomach turning has been cured. Selah.
