When I was a little kid, I hated split pea soup. HATED it. In fact, my mom has a story about how much I hated it that she likes to tell.
She wrote about it in a comment on one of my posts, but essentially it goes like this...my brother was going to make me split pea soup for lunch one summer day. I called my mom at work, crying about how he was going to make split pea soup. Waaah!
