I don't like foods that have an odd texture. Too gooey (unless it's caramel), too rubbery, too waxy and I won't eat it. Wall texture is another thing altogether. First off, you don't eat it (at least, you're not supposed to eat it and I haven't tried). Secondly, walls just look better with some texture. Not sure what the original purpose in wall texture was (hide imperfections, maybe?), but ceiling texture I know was for sound deadening. Now that the mudding and sanding are done (YIPPEE!!), texturing the new surfaces is the next step.
