Roll is Roll. Sush is Sushi. Roll is not Sushi

This happens sometimes when I meet new people.  And this irritates me (little) when it happens.

We talk about food.  And she claims that she LOVES Sushi.  So, we start talking about Sushi.  Then she tells me she only eats California roll and other cooked stuff.

So… she doesn't like sushi.  She likes other stuff they sell at sushi places.   It's like me going to Del Taco for Double Del Cheeseburger – and claim I just ate Mexican food.

Roll is not Sushi.  Sushi usually means raw fish sitting on top of a block of rice.  Yes, not all sushi is raw, but most good stuff is raw.

Anything "Roll" is not sushi. California roll is not sushi.

Roll is roll
Sushi is sushi
Roll is not sushi

In many cases, girls who say they love sushi turn out that they cannot handle sushi.  This is frustrating to people who like sushi.
