The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth
The other day, someone asked me if honey is a good sweetener.
My answer was, “It depends.”
If by “honey” you mean the stuff you buy in the supermarket that comes in the cute little bear, the answer is no. If by “honey” you mean raw, unfiltered, uncooked, unpasteurized organic honey, then the answer is an unqualified yes.
Which reminds me of a story.
I was coming out of the sixteen-cinema multiplex at the Lincoln Center Theatres in New York one evening, and just as I blended into the huge crowd exiting the theater on this Friday night, I ran into an old friend I hadn’t seen in ages. We bumped smack into each other on the escalator going down to the main floor and decided to go to the local Starbucks and catch up. As soon as we sat down, we started talking about the movie. “That was so moving,” I said. “Moving?” she said incredulously. “I thought it was completely maudlin and sophomoric.” “What are you talking about?” I asked. “The acting was incredible, the writing was sophisticated.” “Sophisticated?” she snorted. “Well, maybe if you consider Adam Sandler sophisticated!”
We looked at each other .. .
… and suddenly realized .. .
… we saw different movies.
There’s a lesson in that, and it has to do with food. And language.
The person asking me about “honey” didn’t make a distinction between the bear kind and the raw unfiltered kind, yet they are two completely different foods. If I had answered the question without knowing which she was talking about, it would have been like having a discussion about “the movie” and not realizing that one person had seen a drama and one had seen a comedy. You and I could be having a discussion about what it’s like to have a pet, but if you’re thinking “cats” and I’m thinking “dogs” we’re not talking about the same thing, even if we think we are.
