Lena Vegamite and other Ozzie dangers (106* d) RE: Vegamite and other Ozzie dangers 27 Sep 00


I was struck and scared in the beginning from the amazing quantity of dangers in Oz.hen you come from tamed,safe Europe you're not used to dangerous spiders,dangerous storms,whatever.But yes,Vegemite was one of the most dramatic moments in my life.Besides,Guinness beer to me tastes like melted Vegemite.Anyway.I was wandering in Adelaide Domestic airport,waiting for a friend to arrive with another plane.I decided to have some breakfast and bought a huge danish pastry thingy.Walking towards a table,I spotted this basket full of vegemite portions,and I thought:mmmh.Must be some sort of jam.As you know,you spread a pinch of vegemite on a huge quantity of bread and butter and that's already hard to eat.But I stuck TWO FINGERS of that terrible thing on a mouthful of cake,and ate it.In a second,I was cracked from the taste in my mouth-a taste so amazingly bitter that you can't believe to it.I became pretty much purple ,and started running around looking for a bin to spit it out,or some toilets,or whatever.I kept on running and running with tears in my eyes.
It was also the occasion I found out that in Adelaide Domestic Airport there are-could you believe it?!- no bins
