You have to choose one flavor that your sense of taste will no longer be able to distinguish. Sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami, spicy (not a taste per se, but we’re generous): which one do you choose to lose?
Off the top of my head I can’t think of anyone who truly enjoys the company of a bitter person. We’ve all, at one time or another, encountered a stranger, who displays a sour disposition. And we quickly regret opening the proverbial bucket of worms. That’s why a used car salespeople always instructs his staff to NEVER ask, “how they are”? “He’s your customer, not your patient. You want to sell him a car, not a bottle of pills.” Sometimes it makes no difference what you say, kind words still reap salty returns – especially in the early morning hours. Anyone seeking the comfort of a sweet disposition should slow down long enough to offer some attention to their dog. Mr. Black has yet to show us a salty side and he’s been our constant companion for more than a decade.
