Shrimp Poop

I was with some very good friends this past weekend on Jekyll Island. We ate at a Japanese steak house where they cook the food in front of you and so I ordered the steak and shrimp combo. Now, if the friendly hibachi chef has his trusty knife out and is going to butterfly the shrimp about deveining those bad boys?? I don't think it is too much to ask. Some of those shrimp had obviously just had a Thanksgiving feast and I was not about to eat that....stuff. My good friend, Rodney, chided me and said I should "just eat 'em!" Rodney says he's going to get me to eat crawfish and love Nascar, too, but THAT ain't happening!
Not one to waste food (or my food's waste!), I gave them to my husband. He's not like Mikey...he really will eat anything. I don't think I am weird because I prefer my shrimp heavy on the garlic, light on the excrement. Today I read about a man who plays the turkey baster like an instrument--now that is weird! Rodney dared me to write a blog about the shrimp poop, so this is for you, Rodney Thrift. Long live the shrimp deveiner!!

I would just like to say that I saw a man playing a turkey baster on some ridiculous late night comedy show, and I was very disturbed...
