I don't think my sister has. My brother's father-in-law made wonderful limas, and I liked them. When I was young, I used to eat spinach at the neighbor's house because my mother didn't like that, either.

"Carrots are good for your eyes."

"Spinach will make you strong like Popeye."

"Too much coffee will stunt your growth."
