Two funny beliefs regarding lettuce

One part of the world believes that lettuce is a thing you eat raw, in a salad, to satisfy a hankering for crunch, to be refreshed. 

Another part of the world believes that lettuce is a thing you eat steamed or boiled, in broth, wilted. 

The people in the first hemisphere generally agree that the idea of steamed lettuce or boiled lettuce is, well, weird

The people in the second hemisphere generally agree that the idea of eating raw lettuce is, well, unheard of. (The risk of e. coli all but vanishes when you boil it, for instance. Too soon?)

There are no wrong answers. You can eat a salad. And you can make lettuce soup. The possibilities are endless. You are in charge.
