Alix, I've tried them and don't like them. On our first date Himself ordered some kind of raw oyster appetizer. Asked me to try one - wouldn't take no for an answer. Afterwards he asked what I thought of it - I told him I'd let him know some other time since I didn't want to ruin his dinner. Basically, my sinuses drain a lot!
I don't need to eat oysters too. BTW, fried ones didn't seem much better. Think of it this way: I'm doing oyster lovers a favor by saving them for people like you.
