I'm allergic to eggs and have the same problem mentioned where relatives (or friends) often ask me to sample some new food with eggs and tell me to "just try a small bite" or "I only used two eggs". I explain that it doesn't take more than a small bite to cause a reaction, and if they keep insisting, I have a rather crude response that usually gets the message across. I say "Okay, I'll try it, but if I vomit, you have to clean it up!"

I would just ask them if they feel like playing Russian roulette with 6 bullets in the gun. They go first, of course. :)

I do recall once replying that I'd consider eating *just a little bit* of my allergen if they would first eat *just a little bit* of arsenic.

My best answer for that one is that it's only going to kill me a little bit, not a lot! :twisted:

Technically, I'm not sure of course, but I think one could survive a little bit of arsenic. I could be mistaken not beeing good in biology or medicine, but I recall reading something about it or seeing something on TV.
