No-one eats squid heads! Well, at least people don't. How on earth did
you come to eat an uncleaned squid?
I once had a prawn head. I don't know if this is normal or not. I went out
for Chinese food with my friend and her family when I was a child. This is
something we rarely did in our family. When we did, I usually had plain
white rice, the BBQ pork and whatever vegetables came with pea pods. At
home, my mom would often serve that cheap stuff in a can, I think it was
Chow Mein, and I really couldn't stomach that. I assumed all Chinese food
was like that.
Anyway... My friend's parents ordered for us. Most likely some kind of
family meal as is often the case in the Chinese/American places that were
common around here at that time. There were breaded prawns. I didn't want
to try one but did it to be polite. As was customary for me with breaded
foods, I bit a piece of the breading off. I generally would just eat the
breading and throw out whatever was inside of it. I didn't care for breaded
foods. Anyway... I bit the coating off of the head and there were two eyes
staring back at me.
I can't remember exactly what happened next, but I do know I made quite a
spectacle of myself and was anything but polite!
They never invited me for Chinese food again after that!
