Numb3rs Fic: East Meets West  
Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #309 – West

Title: East Meets West
Pairing/Characters: Amita
Rating: G
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Pilot
Summary: Growing up Amita got used to her friends thinking she ate weird stuff
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

Growing up, Amita ate curry about as often as her white friends ate McDonalds. A meal without rice just seemed incomplete.

At six she begged for the sugary cereal on the Saturday morning cartoon commercials and fell in love with Lucky Charms.

The neighborhood kids looked at her funny for getting excited over the tamarind-flavored candies in her Halloween bucket. None of them knew what a tamarind was.

Amita's tastebuds had always been a mix of East and West, so when Charlie brought a whole new dimension of flavors into her life, she learned to enjoy fish on a bagel.

Hee! /has images of explaining mozhagootal and thengozhal to her North Indian friends/ This is awesome. And wow, y'all don't have tamarind over there? /feels sorry for you/

Great work, Emma! I love this little glimpse into Amita's mind.

Oh god I want a bagle and lox now!

Awwwww! Very sweet! I love the idea of Charlie introducing her to bagels and lox. (And what an excellent opportunity to use my curry icon!)

Love this! I got introduced to the idea of bagels and lox through a cartoon. Rather, the idea of bagels and lox never appealed to me until I saw the characters eating them.

Nice that Charlie introduced Amita to this delicacy!

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. You know we've missed your fun drabbles at N100. Think you might come back soon?

Thanks! I've been trying to corral them plot bunnies to get back into writing. I'll see if I can come up with something soon!

/lends you a lasso/

That would be awesome!
