Husband wants spicier food, wife gives him Trinidad scorpion pepper
Dave is a very spoiled man when it comes to Kristy and her cooking. There isn't much she can't do in the kitchen and she feeds him much better than he deserves. Dave should have learned early on that complaining about his wife's food just wouldn't be a smart idea, but sometimes concepts are difficult for men to grasp.
Dave enjoys the spicy food and heaps the hot sauce on for a little extra kick. But Dave got a little "saucier" than any husband should and he told Kristy that the spice could be a little bit spicier. Kristy started a plan that would take a full year to carry out. She was determined to give Dave exactly what he was asking for and maybe throw in a little life lesson at the same time.
Kristy went online and found a seed company that promised a crop of some extremely hot peppers. Ghost peppers have been reputed to be the hottest pepper in the world, even though the Trinidad scorpion and Carolina reaper have nudged them out for the title. Kristy found seeds for quite an array of heat and planted a patch of peppers that would peel the paint off a car.
When the time came for the harvest, Kristy told Dave his peppers were ready and that he was welcome to try them. Dave dared to ask if they were going to be as hot as she promised and Kristy issued a challenge. She dared Dave to eat one right off the plant. Dave couldn't resist and Kristy decided to film it.
Dave is definitely used to hot peppers, hot sauce, and anything spicy. He eats Vietnamese peppers like a vegetable and loads the Tabasco on all sorts of foods, so he was a little cocky when he figured this would be pretty easy. He would even admit later that he thought he could eat the whole pepper and possibly a second one. With almost no hesitation, he grabs what he thinks is a ghost pepper. We will never know if Kristy suspected that it was actually a Trinidad scorpion, but Dave was on a roll and Kristy wasn't about to stop him.
Dave bites into the pepper, starts to feel the burn and then figures he's got it under control. He tries to pretend it's not so bad. At Kristy's suggestion, he takes a second bite, now chewing on more than half of a raw pepper. Dave quickly finds out that the heat hadn't peaked and he suddenly knows he's in serious trouble.
With no planning and no milk nearby, he runs for the garden hose and tries to stuff it in his mouth. He would eat the spray nozzle at this point and all his pride is gone. Dave rinses and repeats for several minutes but the heat won't subside. His eyes are full of tears, his tongue is on fire, and Kristy is howling with laughter.
The pain has brought with it a new understanding that trying to eat a ghost pepper or a Trinidad scorpion is not so smart, and that complaining about Kristy's cooking is even less smart.
