There's a scene is Saving Private Ryan where the squad is getting pounded big time, and waiting for the next installment to start. They're smoking to try to calm their nerves. One of the characters, Upham, narrates that on his first day, when he was offered a cigarette, he said "no thank you, I don't smoke," which everyone finds hilariously absurd.

That is exactly the story of me and coffee at my new job. On my first day, I said "no thank you, I hardly ever drink coffee." Now I tell that story to colleagues and we laugh about it. I need at least three to get through the day.

My mom (and sis) tried tempting me with soymilk that was Pista (or maybe it was simply Elaichi) flavored (actually!), and I all but spit it out.
They still claim its yum, though - maybe the taste needs getting used to, as things go or as they said, my tastebuds had been to a burial...;P
I mean I know people who initially thought Sarson ka saag was yuck- but after a coupla helpings changed their mind!
